The design of an efficient mobile healthcare system using 3.5G and 4G wireless networks is a challenging problem especially for bandwidth demanding telemedical applications. In this paper, we focus on the concept of medical quality of service (m-QoS) applied to a typical bandwidth demanding m-health application. Based on this concept, we propose a novel multiobjective rate-control mechanism for the optimized delivery of diagnostically acceptable ultrasound video images over 3.5G wireless networks. The performance of the proposed algorithm has been evaluated via both simulations and experimental studies. The proposed optimal rate control algorithm achieved performance improvements that are compatible with the medical QoS requirements.
