BACKGROUND CONTEXT: Timely interpretation of computed tomography (CT) scans is of paramount importance in diagnosing and managing spinal column fractures, which can be devastating. Out-of-hospital, on-call spine surgeons are often asked to evaluate CT scans of patients who have sustained trauma to the thoracolumbar spine to make diagnosis and to determine the appropriate course of urgent treatment. Capturing radiographic scans and video clips from computer screens and sending them as instant messages have become common means of communication between physicians, aiding in triaging and transfer decision-making in orthopedic and neurosurgical emergencies...

The pre-grafting Tele-Radiological (TRE) evaluation of the Uterus Graft (UG) on Telemedicine Systems, in Uterus Transplant (UT) is studied by diagnostic sensitivity-specificity analysis based on simulation of TRE of the UG on 10 MR sets of female pelvic digital images by two radiologists, assessing a. The vascular variations of the grafts, and b. The inflammatory and neoplastic lesions of the UG. The pre-grafting TRE of the UG showed: a. Diagnostic unreliability for vascular variations, b. A high diagnostic reliability for inflammatory and neoplastic diseases of the UG (100%), making the MRI based TRE of the UG in UT, feasible and highly reliable for the remote pre-grafting diagnosis of UG pathologic lesions, but unreliable for integrated vascular anatomic and pathologic UG remote evaluation for pre-grafting and pre-transplant decision support and planning...

The open accessibility of Internet-based medical images in teleradialogy face security threats due to the nonsecured communication media. This paper discusses the spatial domain watermarking of ultrasound medical images for content authentication, tamper detection, and lossless recovery. For this purpose, the image is divided into two main parts, the region of interest (ROI) and region of noninterest (RONI). The defined ROI and its hash value are combined as watermark, lossless compressed, and embedded into the RONI part of images at pixel's least significant bits (LSBs)...
