Abstract

"Telemedicine" is a major new development with great potential for improving health care delivery. It therefore affects each department in medicine. There is a great deal of telemedicine activity around the world. However, the term telemedicine is not clear. It describes all forms of medical information, transferred from a relevant distance by an electronic transfer media. An essential condition for communication is the intelligibility between transmitter and receiver. Because of different transmitting technologies andnetworks in distinct countries, towns, or even academic institutions, satisfactory contact is not possible. In the last decade, the demand for worldwide audiovisual data transmissionhas led to the standardization of telecommunication media. Therefore it isno longer necessary to transport medical data (or even patients) by conventional manners, e.g., post car, or aircraft. Telemedicine for diagnosis andmanagement can be bidirectional in real-time, long-distance videoconferencing, in which the patient consults a specialist located at the remote site,or it can be the transmission of either real-time or prerecorded images and data to a remote expert, as in teleradiology or telepathology. Another application is the use of videoconference systems in the course of meetings. The remote specialist has the opportunity to take part in the session, e.g., with a lecture. Furthermore, the remote specialist can demonstrate special operative techniques for teleteaching purposes, some of which may be specialities of the particular medical unit, e.g., operation in open NMR, telemanipulation,or telerobotic procedures. In this paper,we describe the use and benefit of a videoconference betweenthe departments of otolaryngology and head and neck surgery of the Universities of Tubingen and Leipzig by means of an "ISDN-based videoconference system". During the meeting,the "operating course for reconstructive surgery in the head and neck", the practicability, reliability, costs and quality were determined and compared with other technologies for audiovisual data transfer.
