Specialized diagnostic investigation





The Institute of Aerospace Medicine at the German Aerospace Center (DLR) and SCOTTY Group SE Austria now cooperate in the field of telemedicine for more than 10 years in the civil and military sector. Thus having a great expertise in telemedical systems and application development. They developed telemedical systems for the German Armed Forces (Bundeswehr) that presently are used in about 100 locations by land and by sea.

ASYSTED (Advanced System for Tele-guidance in Diagnostics) is the latest common development, a new teleassistance system for remote ultrasound diagnostics. ASYSTED provides intuitive visual and acoustic examiner guidance to improve ultrasound probe placement and image acquisition.


Benefits for patients and health care systems:

- ASYSTED is a fast procedure to catch up with experts’ assessment, and thus increases the quality of ultrasound examination even if performed by inexperienced examiners.

- ASYSTED accelerates diagnostics and allocation of a patient to appropriate medical care.

- ASYSTED thus can avoid patient transports saving costs especially in remote areas.

- ASYSTED is a functional extension of existing sonography devices. Most devices can be connected if providing video output and DICOM communication interfaces.

- ASYSTED can be used not only in the medical application scenario but for training purposes as well.
