Researchers at the University of California San Francisco have modified public access data security software to make it suitable for teleradiology. The package, Pretty Good Privacy, is a two-key scrambler. The researchers have added anti-tamper software and adapted it for images stored in their PACS (Picture Archiving and Communications System), so that data can be sent over open networks or the Internet.
