Telesonography means Remote Medical Diagnostic Ultrasound. 3-D stands
for incremental volume reconstruction and 4-D stands for 3-D along time.
i.e. 3-D video. With 3-D/4-D telesonography we will not need trained
people at the remote end. If we link an automatic 3-D multifrequency
probe, a PC (or a proper ultrasound scanner), an interface between the
PC and the probe, proper software and ultrafast (ultrawide) data
transmission media like Internet 2, we will get an excellent way to do
remote ultrasound diagnosis. Add 3-D/4-D color processing (under
research by us) and we get fast and reliable remote diagnostic
ultrasound. We need more research to develop 3-D/4-D telesonography but
conditions are ready. Automatic Color 4-D telesonography is under
development, too. 3-D/4-D telesonography will make easier medical
diagnosis by adding volume to images transmission.
