  • A patient from remote rural area is consulting with a specialist at a large urban medical center on-line, via videoconferencing, without a need for traveling 200 miles to that center.
  • A radiogram or a CT scan of such patient is transmitted electronically to the large medical center, where it is viewed and “read” by an experienced radiologist.
  • A biopsy specimen taken from a patient in one country is reviewed and interpreted by an expert pathologist thousand miles away, in another country.
  • A surgeon operates on a patient across the continents, using surgical robot manipulated through satellite connection.
  • Telemedicine & eHealthA chronically ill patient has his/her vital signs constantly measured (monitored) and transmitted to a nurse/physician station, while staying at home in bed.
  • A cardiologist on board of a transatlantic flight sees over his PDA an electrocardiogram or an echocardiography exam being done in real time on a patient admitted to his clinic.
