Comparison of thoracic radiographs with images transmitted via advanced telecommunications equipment



Comparison of thoracic radiographs with images transmitted via advanced telecommunications equipment



Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association 211(10): 1245-1248



Objective-To compare thoracic radiographs of clinically normal dogs and dogs with mild clinical heartworm disease with images transmitted by a desktop, two-way audiovisual teleconferencing system. Design-Prospective, matched-set study. Study Population-50 thoracic radiographs from clinically normal and heartworm-infected dogs and the digitally transmitted images of those radiographs. Procedure-Thoracic radiographs from 25 clinically normal dogs and 25 dogs infected with 1 to 24 heartworms were evaluated by 3 clinicians. Using classic criteria for heartworm disease, evaluations of radiographs and images transmitted digitally over 2 high-speed data-transfer telephone lines (56 kilobits/s/line) were performed. Clinicians were asked to determine whether dogs had radiographic signs of heartworm disease. Results-Clinicians' ability to detect heartworm disease did not differ between interpretations of radiographs and those of transmitted images. Clinical Implications-Radiographic images transmitted via a teleconference system can be used to provide reliable diagnostic information. Thoracic radiographs can be interpreted at a remote site permitting rapid consultation and immediate advice on clinical management.
