Application of a Robotic Tele-Echography System for COVID-19 Pneumonia

© 2020 American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine..

To date, coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has infected millions of people worldwide. Ultrasound plays an indispensable role in the diagnosis, monitoring, and follow-up of patients with COVID-19. In this study, we used a robotic tele-echography system based on a 5G communication network for remote diagnosis. The system has great potential for lung, heart, and vasculature information, medical staff protection, and resource sharing, can be a valuable tool for treating patients during the pandemic, and can be expected to expand to more specialized fields.
