Teleradiology in Outer Space
"Researchers with the NASA-funded National Space Biomedical Research Institute (NSBRI) have developed a guide aimed at enabling astronauts to administer and interpret their own ultrasound exams from space. Previously, astronauts had used ultrasound under the guidance of specialists back on Earth, who then read the images remotely. The researchers’ projects have both enhanced this teleradiology process and enabled self-review of images for certain exams."
