I'm just guessing, but I'd say they're probably too large. Most mail
servers have a cap on attachment sizes, often as small as 10MB, and
x-ray images can be 15MB in size according to
I'm also guessing you don't want to use a lossy algorithm like JPEG to
compress the images since you could lose important details that the
doctor needs to see.
