Real-time telediagnosis of radiological images through an asynchronous transfer mode network: the ARTeMeD project

J Digit Imaging. 1997 Aug;10(3 Suppl 1):116-21. doi: 10.1007/BF03168673.


The ARTeMeD project aims to solve problems of interactivity and real-time in teleradiology. It integrates personal multimedia facilities and patient data access in a common platform that allows radiologists to collaborate from remote sites through a suitable communication support. ARTeMeD is based on asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) network technology and an optimized manipulation of medical image material. The ARTeMeD system opens interesting perspectives in the area of collaborative teleradiology.
