Research overview:
Increase in number of middle-to-high aged mountaineers is incurring increase of illness and accidents in mountains. This situation has been dealt with by volunteer activities of lots of medical colleges who open temporary clinics in summer season at mountain cottages. Less experienced doctors stationed at cottages have been assisted by professional doctors through remote medical treatments. However, transmission of high quality medical information such as obtained with ausculation and inspection has been found difficult. In this connection, a remote diagnostic system that makes possible more satisfactory mountain medical treatment is developed using gigabit network, which transmits the high quality clinical information from mountain cottages to professional doctors located in remote places.
