Abstract
Congenital heart disease is infrequent and often is apparent in the immediate newborn period. Accurate diagnosis delivered in real-time or near-real-time is important to provide appropriate care to avoid patient morbidity and mortality. Color-flow Doppler echocardiograms are an essential part of the diagnostic assessment of the newborn, however, few hospitals have the staff to interpret these studies appropriately. Transmission of these studies to a regional center with subspecialists will allow interpretation of the studies by physicians with expertise in this subspecialty. Transmission of these studies to a regional center with subspecialists will allow interpretation of the studies by physicians to appropriately and rapidly triage neonates with high-risk congenital heart disease. To make a teleradiology service affordable in the near future, the 73 million bit per second transmission speed must be reduced to affordable bandwidths using compression. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the impact of motion JPEG on the diagnostic quality of pediatric echocardiograms.
