Paper Abstract

In the frame of the EC-sponsored TELEMED project, remote expert consultation in radiology has been developed and implemented. This environment has been established as a pan- European demonstrator for advanced telecommunication applications in medicine. Five European university hospitals have been interconnected using broadband networks from 2 Mbit/s to 140 Mbit/s. Videoconference was introduced and evaluated in more than 120 sessions. In the experiments, videoconference proved to be a useful tool for teleconsultations, providing a number of requirements identified as indispensable for medical videoconference such as remotely adjustable iris for the document camera are fulfilled.
