This project is being undertaken between the Imaging Science and Information Systems (ISIS) Center of the Georgetown University Medical Center (GUMC) and the Departments of Internal Medicine, Surgery and Pediatrics at GUMC. It investigates the design and technical efficacy of a common Personal Computer (PC) platform for three different medical applications. This platform will be used for each project with different configurations depending on the clinical needs. The efficacy of a common telemedicine platform has not been evaluated in the literature. The first application, with the Department of Internal Medicine, Division of Clinical Pharmacology, investigates the usefulness of Telemedicine when used for a clinical pharmacology consultation service from an off-site location. The second application, with the Department of Surgery, Division of Urology, tests the utility of a telemedicine platform including radiology images for a surgical stone disease consultation service from an off site location in West Virginia. The third application, with the Department of Pediatrics, will test telemedicine for clinical subspecialty pediatrics consultation service from an off-site location in Virginia as well as allowing the resident to `attend' grand rounds at GUMC
