Telemedicine Ready Ultrasound System

Telemedicine Ready Ultrasound System. Remote diagnosis using ultrasound imaging has received considerable attention lately. However, technical limitation has made it difficult to improve the diagnostic accuracy. This limitation can now be overcome due to technology progress. Regular configuration for ultrasound telemedicine includes an ultrasound scanner with TV video output, a PC with video capture board, a communication network and a remote PC for remote ultrasound imaging display. In order to simplify this complex chain, engineers of Telemed Ltd developed technical solutions that have been implemented in the PC-based ultrasound scanner Echo Blaster 128. Practical applications for real-time image transfer have been successfully tested at the University of Medicine and Pharmacy Cluj Napoca (Romania):- LAN or VERY HIGH SPEED INTERNET (over 2 Mbps). The "clone" of the ultrasound screen can be received on a remote server, while the ultrasound device may be controlled distantly. The images are obtained in real time with possibility to freeze, measure and set adjustments of the ultrasound scanner from the remote computer.- HIGH SPEED INTERNET (over 256 Kbps). Ultrasound frames are compressed using an external encoder, transferred remotely via internet, decompressed and displayed on a remote PC. In this case, the ultrasound image is compressed using an encoder, sent remotely via internet, decompressed and displayed on the remote PC.These solutions can be easily implemented in hospitals and clinics for real-time ultrasound data transfer between departments, in different geographic areas to cover rural health, between a district general hospital and a subspeciality referral centre. Depending on the specificity of each application, communication and archiving software can be easily developed.Telemedicine Ready Ultrasound System
