My country has a huge territory and an uneven distribution of medical resources, which makes it difficult for residents of rural or remote areas to receive timely and high-quality medical care. Once disease becomes more severe, everyone gets used to going to a big hospital in a big city, and pressure of visiting a doctor in a big hospital remains high all year round. However, with development of science and technology, advent of 5G has become a turning point in complexity of going to the doctor.
Remote consultation has a long history. Traditional remote consultation uses a wired video connection, which is associated with high construction and maintenance costs and low mobility. The high-speed performance of 5G network can support 4K/8K high-resolution remote consultation, and high-speed transmission and sharing of medical image data, and allow experts to consult anytime, anywhere, improve diagnostic accuracy and guidance efficiency, and promote depletion of high-quality medical resources.
Compared to CT, MRI and other technologies, method of ultrasound examination depends largely on scanning technique of doctor. The probe is similar to eyes of a doctor during an ultrasound examination. orientation of transducer and selection of scan areas for diagnosing patients will have corresponding deviations in final test results.
Because general hospitals often lack excellent ultrasound doctors, it is necessary to install a remote ultrasound system that can achieve high definition and no delay, in order to make full use of high-quality diagnostic capabilities of hospital's highly trained specialists, and realize inter-regional and inter-hospital business guidance and quality control to ensure standardization and rationality of the methods used by lower level hospitals for ultrasound work.
Remote ultrasound allows remote experts to control a robotic arm to perform ultrasound examinations of patients in primary hospitals.
The millisecond latency characteristics of 5G will help experienced clinicians operate a robotic arm for real-time remote ultrasound examinations.
Compared to traditional leased lines and Wi-Fi, 5G networks can solve complexity and cost of building leased lines in remote areas such as primary hospitals and islands, as well as insecure Wi-Fi data transmission in hospitals and large delays. in remote control.
With help of medical-industrial robots and high-definition audio-video interactive systems, remote specialists can provide timely remote surgical care to patients in primary healthcare facilities.
The 5G network can simplify complex wired and wireless network environment in operating room, as well as reduce network access complexity and construction costs.
Using 5G network slicing technology, you can quickly establish an exclusive communication channel between upper and lower hospitals, effectively ensuring stability, real-time operation and security of remote surgery, allowing experts to monitor operation process and patients' conditions at any time and in anywhere. and implementation of inter-regional remote surgery. Accurate surgical control and guidance are essential to reduce cost of patient care and help to use high-quality medical resources.
What's more, in special environments such as war zones and epidemics, use of 5G networks can quickly create communication environment required for remote surgery and improve emergency response capabilities of medical personnel.
Remote monitoring is use of wireless communication technology to assist in medical monitoring, to carry out continuous and long-term monitoring of patients' vital signs in real time, and to transmit received vital sign data and critical alarm information to medical personnel with using wireless connection Remote monitoring form.
Based on 5G capabilities with low latency and precise positioning, it can support wearable monitoring devices to continuously transmit patient location information during use, collect, process and calculate vital sign data, and transmit it to a remote monitoring center. Medical staff can carry out timely diagnosis and treatment based on patient's current condition in real time.
With continuous development of computer technology and medical imaging technology, medical imaging has gradually evolved from an auxiliary method of examination into an essential method of clinical diagnosis and differential diagnosis in modern medicine.
Based on PACS image data, 5G smart medical solutions build AI-assisted diagnosis and treatment applications with big data and AI solutions, model and analyze medical image data, analyze conditions and lesions, and enable physician decision making. , improve efficiency and quality of medical care, may well solve many problems in field of medical imaging in my country, such as:
The supply is seriously unbalanced, and number of imaging doctors is insufficient, especially lack of highly qualified doctors with rich clinical experience; diagnosis result is mainly determined by visual examination and experience of imaging doctors, and rate of misdiagnosis and missed diagnosis is high, limited by imaging The doctor reads film quickly, takes a long time and so on.
