Paper Abstract

A pan-European telemedicine environment has been established in the frame of the EC- sponsored TELEMED project. Remote expert consultation in radiology using digital image communication has been developed and implemented as a demonstrator for advanced telecommunication applications in medicine. Eight European university hospitals have been interconnected using 384 kbit/s ISDN and 2 Mbit/s broadband networks. A set of requirements was derived and software for image and text communication, for image display and manipulation and for synchronization of remote workstations was developed. The benefits of digital image communication were demonstrated in evaluation experiments.
