Abstract

Purpose: Because of the recent innovative growth in computer technology, digital imaging, and the Internet, we can take advantage of these facilitiesfor education and clinical work in nuclear medicine. We developed a tele-nuclear medicine conference system with electronic mail (e-mail) on the Internet. Methods: Twenty-one physicians (20 radiologists, 1 neurologist), 6 technologists and 2 medical students in six university hospitals (Japan 5, Canada 1), 5 local hospitals in Japan participated in this project. We used digital still cameras (330 k pixels) equipped with a floppy disk drive and 10 x optical zoom to digitize images with JPEG compression (640 x 480 matrix). The images were attached to e-mail messages (containing a brief description of each case). The mail was sent simultaneously to all members on the mailing list. Scintigram and SPECT images as well as other radiological images were sent by e-mail. Reply mails about each case were sent to all members via the mailing list. Results: During a period of 6 months, 18 cases (tumor/infection: 7, bone: 6, cardiovascular: 1, neurology; 3, endocrine: 1) with 144 e-mails. (average 5.6/case) were submitted to the conference. The average period of discussion was 15.6 days. The number of attached images was1 to 9 (average, 4.2/e-mails). JPEG compression rate was 1/10 to 1/20. Thequality of the images was good enough for discussion. Some cases required additional images for further discussion. Conclusion: Our tele-nuclear medicine conference with an electronic mailing list and digital camera was simple and low-cost. The conference system was useful for education and clinical work.
