However, the reality is that it requires many years of training plus much experience to become skilled at this valuable expertise called Sonography.

A project using robot-assisted echocardiography and videoconferencing proved shortening of the time required by patients with alleged heart failure (who lived in countryside) to receive consultations with the Cardiologist. Kurt Boman of Umea University Sweden and equals developed an approach to offer treatment for Senior citizens in distant regions who needed sophisticated analysis and management. They registered 38 patients with heart failure in a countryside area. All of them were in need of Specialist care; 19 amongst them received imaging assisted by robots and ensued by videoconference with a Cardiologist, a Sonographer, the patient and a general practitioner. The other 19 went through conventional care. The conclusion was that the total time was much shorter in case of the first group.
