The CHILI teleradiology network has more than 60 installations in Germany and the USA. Radiological images and cardiological multiframe series are exchanged in clinical routine. This article investigates in what way and how often the system is used. This is done by means of accounting files that are produced automatically by the system. User functions, transmission protocols, data quantity, frequencies and time of data transmission and teleconferences are evaluated and discussed in this paper. Different application scenarios have been identified and are described and analyzed as well. An important result is, that the system is not merely an emergency system. Instead, it is used in daily routine as a multifunctional, multimodality workstation with advanced features for teleradiology and telecardiology.
