Telemedicine in the sun: the setting up of a PACS system in the Cyclades islands in the Aegean sea

While the numerous islands that make up the Cyclades group in the Aegean
sea southeast of mainland Greece are a much sought-after destination for
foreign tourists, the geography of the archipelago causes a significant challenge
for the provision of health care services to both the indigenous and
visiting populations. The General Hospital on the island of Syros has recently
set up a multisite PACS system linking several islands in the Cyclades and
enabling the transmission of radiology images between the islands.
