Transmission of visual documentation using a mobile phone significantly helps in the consultation of a craniocerebral injury between a neurosurgery center and a regional hospital. It is one of the methods of fast consultation of image documentation ( CT ). In our department we report on a year’s experience (September 2007 to September 2008) with this method of image transmission in 16 patients with a craniocerebral injury . The images were exported, via the Internet, from the surrounding hospitals through the PACS system, [Picture Archiving and Communication System], in DICOM III format, to the server of the Regional Hospital of T. Baťa, (KNTB). Browsing the acquired image documentation at single stations is enabled by the xVision browser. The data is exported to a secure hospital Web server, IIS60, to enable consultation on the images and the images are changed to JPEG format. The consulting physician is connected to this server by his/her mobile phone by means of the Internet browser. After establishing the connection, it downloads and gradually displays the images on the screen of the mobile phone. The whole process takes approximately 10 minutes. By comparing the images on the screen of the mobile phone and on the work station using the xVision browser we verified that there was no difference in the quality of imaging of the pathological lesions in the CT image.
