A novel image capture and retrieval system has been developed for use in a range of telehealth applications in the home and in residential care facilities. The system is based around the JPEG 2000 standard and uses the PTP protocol for image capture from any high resolution digital camera and the Kakadu suite of JPEG2000 utilities to serve the collected images via a proxy server over any available communication channel from telephone lines to broadband services. When coupled with an image processing system such as the AMWIS system for pressure wound management, the system provides a high level of clinical functionality suitable for a wide range of telemedicine applications in rural and remote sites
