Remote handling of the ultrasound probe

Thanks to the MELODY Expert system, the imaging expert performs ultrasound exams on a patient located remotely.
He manipulates a “dummy probe”, similar to the real one, allowing him to control the robotic arm.

The ultrasound image is displayed on a screen in real time. The expert is capable to make the settings of the ultrasound machine from distance.

Real-time communication

The ultrasound image, the robotic arm command and the videoconferencing are transmitted through internet in real time.

The videoconferencing system allows the expert to speak with the patient.

The system has been designed to use a limited internet bandwidth (2Mbits/s onwards), and therefore it is fully operational in rural areas with ADSL, 3G+, 4G and satellite networks.
