Study validates low-cost analog teleradiology

The best things in life need not necessary cost alot of money, this applies too, to the interesting world of TeleRadiology.

A group iof german researchers have found that a technically simple low-cost teleradiology system is sufficient to provide appropriate treatment of trauma, stroke, and intracerebral hematoma patients, this can potentially translate to a reduction in the rising cost of healthcare.

“A paper documenting five years of experience with the system concludes that the analog image transfer apparatus used for ordinary telephone data transmission delivers image quality adequate to triage neurotrauma patients (J Telemed Telecare 2008;14:67-70). “

The entire article is quite long, hence, I’m not going to “hash it”, instead, I’d encourge interested readers to read more about it here.
