Special Service Telesonography

The goal is to get a suitable support with “ultrasound images” obtained in real time by a not specialised technician (remote station) and read by a Specialist (Reference Center). The experience was developed during a first pioneer phase (TIMTEM updating 2001) and later  during TIMTEM 2002 with a good standard of use: detailed Reports are available (WEB- MEDLINE). The remote technician moves the probe on the patient’s body (abdomen and neck above all) following the Specialist’s instructions (videoconference system integrated with “US window”) after  a special training and a continuous up dating with  tele-training. The images- color doppler as well- are read by the Specialist  who can suggest or not  a diagnosis , inform the Doctor and support him in his “decision making”. The images can be stored and then compared by means of a U.S. Archive-Registry . Details about methodology and results can be checked in published papers. A “Remote Telesonography’s methodologies and training handbook”  is coming soon from TIMTEM experience.
