iPod Medical Imaging

Via Roland Piquepaille’s Technology Trends: iPod Imaging:

It’s an interesting route-around of the usual IT solutions (which offer not enough space and are less convenient). My cursory inspection of all the linked-to articles and software documentation shows zero discussion of privacy, security, and HIPAA — yet. Is sending a medical image via iChat secure enough?
