Paper Abstract

Testing was conducted to obtain qualitative and quantitative (statistical) data on radiology performance using the Remote Medical Diagnosis System (RMDS) Advanced Development Models (ADMs)1. Based upon data collected during testing with professional radiologists, this analysis addresses the clinical utility of radiographic images transferred through six possible RMDS transmission modes. These radiographs were also viewed under closed-circuit television (CCTV) and lightbox conditions to provide a basis for comparison. The analysis indicates that the RMDS ADM terminals (with a system video resolution of 525 x 256 x 6) would provide satisfactory radiographic images for radiology consultations in emergency cases with gross pathological disorders. However, in cases involving more subtle findings, a system video resolution of 525 x 512 x 8 would be preferable.
