RSNA 2016 communication: « Telerobotic Ultrasound System May Improve Access to Care in Underserved Areas »

During the annual event of the RSNA "Radiological Society of North America", Dr. Scott J.

The approach may provide an opportunity to establish remote US clinics in areas lacking skilled sonographers and radiologists.

According to her, "60% of hospitalizations" for cardiac problems "could be avoided" thanks to this device. "It saves transportation costs, hospitalization, time...

European Hospital NewsPaper – Pr. Michel CLAUDON

Michel CLAUDON and his team (University Hospital of Nancy in France) share their experiences with MELODY: « The team were quite surprised at how quickly they adapted to using the system, within two-three examinations ‘to use a dummy probe honestly became completely natural’.
