The speakers will try to answer these questions: How can a Radiologist read MRI scans in an ER across the globe?  Can someone assess an ECG sitting at home? Can you reach and monitor patients living in remote areas?

“Our world of connected devices brings experts closer to point of care. Even under the hood, remote monitoring of these devices themselves help engineers figure out, for example, if an x-ray tube is about to reach end of its useful life,” organizers of the panel discussion said. “Diagnosis, prediction, and remote repairs can dramatically reduce downtime of equipment and frustration for a patient.  A careful analysis of equipment usage can also guide optimization of clinical procedures.”

The symposium will explore the world of connected devices and what difference that is making in the medical community.
