Olympic Polyclinic

Medical imaging and communications at Olympic Games
Kodak is providing the Olympic Polyclinic with medical imaging and radiology technology through an agreement with Carestream Health, Inc., formerly Kodak's Health Imaging Group. Radiologists will be able to capture digital x-ray images of injured athletes in seconds.
This technology also will enable the Polyclinic to obtain medical images and information electronically from some 20 Beijing-area hospitals, which are providing additional support services for the Games. As a result, radiologists at the Polyclinic will need do little more than click a mouse to review medical images of injured athletes captured at any of the interconnected facilities. This arrangement will help preclude two key things: having to move patient-athletes from one location to another for imaging and diagnosis, and having to hand-carry hardcopies of athletes' medical images from point of origin to radiologists at the Polyclinic. Health providers, consequently, will be able to save valuable time, enabling faster patient treatment.
When the Olympic Games conclude, the equipment Kodak, through its agreement with Carestream Health, is providing the Polyclinic will remain in Beijing and will be transferred to local healthcare organizations by the Beijing Organizing Committee of the Olympic Games.
