We report here on a study of creating medical an image library comprised of simple but digitized gastrointestinal video-scope images, which were digitally compressed using MPEG-1 compression, and on the use of this library for clinical and educational applications. We have designed and installed a test-bed database (WWW) for gastrointestinal video-scope(More)
Tokai University School of Medicine provided a short-term e-Health training program for persons from Pacific Island Nations from 2006 until 2008 supported by funds from the Sasakawa Peace Foundation. There were lectures on software, hardware and topics relating to e-Health. We could assess the current medical situation in the Pacific Islands through this(More)
Independent component analysis (ICA) is a multivariate data analysis tool. The basic principle of ICA is the assumption of independency of the source data. On the separation of the data source, ICA algorithm searches for a demixing matrix that will maximize the independency. This searching process is mostly done in iterative way and involving high order(More)
Internet Protocol (IP) based networks are increasingly being used as alternatives to the traditional circuit-switched networks for carrying voice traffic. IP telephony is taking a firm hold in the world telecommunication market for a wide range of applications including telemedicine. The merits of IP telephony for telemedicine lie in cost-savings and new(More)
At present, mobile phones are not a useful tool for medical control during a disaster. We have estimated the number of satellite channels that would be needed for telemedicine in a major disaster using the Erlang B equation. This indicated that 29 satellite channels would be sufficient for the operation of a telemedicine system for hospital-to-hospital(More)
Telemedicine is valuable to many developing countries. International use of telemedicine is widespread. Telemedicine can improve health care in the developing countries by removing time and distance barrier, and optimize the use of limited health services in developing countries. The purpose of this paper is to investigate the current situation of(More)
We begin this report by defining Chronic Alternate-World Disorder (CAWD) as a symptomatic behavior in which a person becomes fanatically engrossed in a virtual-reality (VR) world to the extent that he or she can no longer distinguish between the actual world and virtual reality. We then report on our investigation and provide an analysis and discussion of(More)
