In the last years, research in MRI has expanded towards portable technology, e.g., trailer units carrying conventional scanners or bedside scanners with low-field strengh. The increased portability and shift away from the centralized hospital environment requires wireless data transmission with appropriate data rates to unfold its full potential. In this work, we made use of current fifth-generation (5G) cellular networks for transmitting DICOM data. We demonstrate the potential of reaching more than 50 Mbit/s upload speed using consumer-grade hard- and software. This holds great potential for cellular transmission of data from portable scanners, allowing to increase access to MRI technology.
