I've only seen companies pushing this data around between their own sites; for
instance a remote clinic with just general practitioners may send films to a
central hospital for analysis, or one hospital may send films to another
hospital when their staff radiologist is out to lunch or on vacation.

BW, of course, depends on how fast you want the transfers to go.  The film files
are in the hundreds of MB range, and providers are upgrading from FT1 FR to FT3
ATM at major sites.
