Detailed Description

Hospitals produce 50 petabytes of data per year. A staggering 90 percent of that is medical imaging, and 50 percent of medical imaging data is from X-ray scanners. This is a flood of data for radiology departments, resulting in potentially long turn-around-time (TAT)—even when the scan is considered stat. In critical conditions, such as pneumothorax, escalation of interpretation is essential to accelerate treatment.
