Busch has developed software designed to make it easier for radiologists to read and annotate images from wherever they are.
"In my field, fiber-optic speeds save lives," Busch said. "Instead of waiting as much as a week or more to get results because radiologists would have to physically go to each location, our patients can get their results in hours or even minutes. When something is seriously wrong, catching it as early as possible can be the difference between life and death."
