"Ultrasound is the new stethoscope"!

.....That is a great quote from Dr Nahum Kovalski, CIO of TEREM Emergency Medical Services and CEO of E-DoctorWorld in the clip filmed at the Mobile World Congress 2010. The advances in mobile broadband communications means that real time streaming of ultrasound images from a remote area is opening up a whole range of possibilities for emergency telemedicine and delivery of care on rural under-served areas.

Of course we at the UBI-SERV project have always been excited by this challenge and it has been one of the central research themes in our project. The slides below summarize some of our proposals on the subject which has also been presented in various health and technology conferences.
