Context-sensitive Teleconsultation Infrastructure

Context-sensitive Teleconsultation Infrastructure

This research investigated "context-sensitive telemedicine." Methods were developed to automatically identify the most relevant image slices containing anatomical structures of interest, achieved by combining a corpus-based anatomy knowledge base with structure delineation through image registration, deformation, and atlas mapping. Through these methods, a "clinical compression" of large imaging studies can be achieved, with only key image slices selected and transmitted for teleconsultation purposes.
