Only 1% of US hospitals are filmless, despite years of hype about the advantages of transmitting, viewing and storing diagnostic images digitally. Two-year-old Emageon has designed a suite of services and software that address some of the reasons hospitals are hesitant to adopt digital archiving and transmission, notably cost and technical difficulties of handling large images digitally.
