OBJECTIVE: To investigate the feasibility and reliability of telemedicine (TS) systems in remote multidisciplinary oncology conferencing for decision-making and treatment of liver injury.
MATERIALS AND METHODS: By an experimental TS, twenty-six (n=26) specialists based on a series of five (N=5) simulated remote imaging examinations, evaluated the sensitivity-specificity of the remote examination of the Liver (L) for neoplastic disease and damage (virtual exam = VE).
RESULTS: Analysis showed lesions (sensitivity=96%), capsula lesions (sensitivity=91.7%), hematomas (sensitivity=91.7%), non-neoplastic disease (specificity=100% ), neoplastic diseases (sensitivity=100%).
CONCLUSION: The VE of (L) in combination with high-tech visualization and multimedia and the remote participation of experts in liver surgical oncology, oncology, radiology, pathology and cytology composes an oncology conference e- achievable and reliable multidisciplinary approach for a personalized and optimal approach. Decision-making and treatment of liver cancer.
