Virtual Real-Time Sonography


Increases in speed and reliability of internet communication has spawned a variety of opportunities to bring vital medical technologies to remote areas of the world and beyond.  These advances in communication have made it possible to bring medical ultrasound technologies to such remote areas as the South Pole research station and even to outer space.  Virtually assisted ultrasound can give sonographers the ability to assist medical providers in remote areas with critical diagnostics.  Below are some links to more information on remote and robotic ultrasound projects.
