Abstract
During time-critical brain surgery, the detection of developing cerebral is chemia is particularly important because early therapeutic intervention may reduce the mortality of the patient. The purpose of this system is to prov ide an efficient means of remote teleconsultation for the early detection o f ischemia, particularly when subspecialists are unavailable. The hardware and software design architecture for the multimedia brain function telecons ultation system including the dedicated brain function monitoring system is described. In order to comprehensively support remote teleconsultation, mu lti-media resources needed for ischemia interpretation were included: EEG s ignals, CSA, CD-CSA, radiological images, surgical microscope video images and video conferencing. PC-based system integration with standard interface s and the operability over the Ethernet meet the cost-effectiveness while t he modular software was customized with a diverse range of data manipulatio ns and control functions necessary for shared workspace and standard interf aces.
