Teleradiology is the transmission of radiographic images from one location to another for interpretation. Teleradiology service providers help to fill the need for sub-specialty expert consultants, vacation leaves, and overflow gaps in the onsite radiology facilities. Teleradiology has become a large and growing industry [1] . The integration standard called the Integrating of Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) [2] have been developed to address communication issues between medical imaging sites…

Using computed tomography simulations, this paper shows some of the limitations of SSIM when used with medical images: uniform pooling, distortion underestimation near hard edges, instabilities in regions of low variance and insensitivity in regions high intensities.

A tele-operated mobile ultrasound scanner using a light-weight robot

This paper presents a new tele-operated robotic chain for real-time ultrasound image acquisition and medical diagnosis. This system has been developed in the frame of the Mobile Tele-Echography Using

Quality evaluation for JPEG 2000 based medical image compression

Simulations on different kind of images showed that the JPEG 2000 achieves better performance against JPEG in terms of image quality at the same bit rate, providing more evidence to support the adoption of JPEG 2000.

Palpable Breast Lump Triage by Minimally Trained Operators in Mexico Using Computer-Assisted Diagnosis and Low-Cost Ultrasound

A portable ultrasound system with CADx software can be successfully used by first-level health care workers to triage palpable breast lumps, ensuring that scarce resources can be dedicated to suspicious lesions requiring further workup.

JPEG/wavelet ultrasound compression study

The purpose of the study was to evaluate the effects of lossy compression on grayscale US images to determine how much compression can be applied, and still have the images be 'acceptable for
