The ability to participate in work via a real-time, virtual presence has transformed communication in professions as diverse as business, the arts, education, and now medicine.

When dual-energy computed tomography (CT) medical imaging was introduced to the health care world more than a decade ago, access to the technology was limited primarily to researchers and physicians in cutting-edge health care systems.

The medical imaging market has become more complex, more demanding, more competitive, and certainly much bigger since that time, however; and is now bound by various standards and strictures that govern not only the security of those images, but their portability as well.

In the age of collaborative, distributed business operations and on-demand resources, cloud computing is the model for the digital workforce and anyone who interacts with it. Finance, media, commerce, travel; essentially, any business with a digital component has either moved or is moving much of its operations to a cloud hosting, distribution, or service platform.

Start a conversation about waste in health care, and you’re likely to encounter perspectives on spending, access to services, insurance premiums or reimbursement rates.

If urgent care centers and freestanding emergency rooms are the health care provider’s analogue of the national fast-food complex, then wringing every last drop of financial efficiency from the systems is the supply-side portion of that equation.

Acording to the study “Ionizing Radiation Exposure with Medical Imaging,” by Edward B. Holmes, 85 percent of the annual average dose of ionizing radiation experienced by the worldwide population comes from natural, background sources; the remainder is “almost exclusively provided by medical ionizing radiation.”
