Telemedicine with DVTS: Expansion in Asia-Pacific and how to make it happen in the United States

Time 10/15/08 03:00PM-04:30PM

Session Abstract

Image quality is a key in telemedicine, and transmission of moving images that preserve medical quality is particularly useful. Digital Video Transport System (DVTS) is a simple and cost effective system that preserves excellent video quality while maintaining a highly interactive,low latency connection between multiple sites. That is why DVTS telemedicine, first established between Japan and Korea, has been so well accepted by the medical community and has expanded rapidly throughout Asia-Pacific area over broadband academic networks. In this session, we would like to introduce our project, show how advanced networking and DVTS has enabled telemedicine, and discuss what the essential elements are to expand this capability into the US and the world. At the same time, we will connect 4 medical stations by DVTS for the first time in US, demonstrating a teleconference in which endoscopic movies are shown both to the engineers in the venue and to the health providers in the other three stations.
