We developed a system for teleradiology using exclusive fiber optics for transferring images formatted in uncompressed DICOM. This system was built up with commercially available machines and software provided from various companies. We are now operating the system with five remote hospitals and have had one year of experience. The current system took advantage of the security and transfer efficiency of exclusive fiber optics. Uncompressed DICOM images were useful for the identification of cases and user-friendly for viewing. The reading room is located in our university hospital, and the location is convenient for consultation and discussion of cases.
