« How robots are helping doctors save lives in the Canadian North »

« Remote communities often lack access to diagnostic ultrasonography services. This gap disproportionally affects Indigenous pregnant women in the Canadian North and results in increases in maternal and newborn morbidity and mortality.

We are pioneering the use of an innovative tele-robotic ultrasound system that allows an expert sonographer to perform a diagnostic ultrasound study, in real time, in a distant location.

Research shows that robotic ultrasonography is comparable to standard sonography and is accepted by most patients. »

Interview Pr. Mendez,  innovative tele-robotic ultrasound system at the University of Saskatchewan

Interview of Pr. Ivar MENDEZ, Fred H. Wigmore Professor and Provincial Head of the Department of Surgery at the University of Saskatchewan and Saskatchewan Health Authority.

« We’ve been interested in using technology as a tool to deliver care to the people that are in remote areas. In Canada, there is huge territorial extension with population that is dispersed in many small communities that do not have access to healthcare technology such as telemedicine and especially the remote robotic ultrasound system. Melody is going to be very important now and in the future to be able to deliver diagnostic processes to populations that need ultrasonographer in Canada. » cf. Pr. Ivar MENDEZ

MELODY Overview

This movie shows the Telemedicine MELODY solution of the AdEchoTech Company. Remote ultrasonography allows to the radiologist to realize in real time and away from the patient, the ultrasound diagnostic. Remote ultrasonography without borders is now possible.
