Abstract

Telemedicine is a method by which patients can be examined, investigated, monitored, and treated, with the patient and the doctor being located at dif ferent places. Tele is a Greek word meaning distance, and Mederi is a Latin word meaning, to heal. Although initially considered futuristic and exper imental, telemedicine is today a reality and has come to stay. In telemedicine, one transfers the expertise, not the patient. Hospitals of the future will drain patients from all over the world without geographical limitations. High-quality medical services can be brought to the patient, rather than transporting the patient to distant and expensive tertiary-care centers. A major goal of telemed-icine is to eliminate unnecessary traveling of patients and their escorts. Image acquisition, image storage, image display and processing, and image transfer represent the basis of telemedicine. Telemedicine is becoming an integral part of health-care services in several countries
