● Ultrasonic diagnosis support robot“Tenang”has been developing in our lab
● To actualize the various prenatal care service with“Tenang”
● Online service : The obstetrician controls“Tenang”via teleoperation to see the ultrasonic images and diagnosis in real time.
● Offline service : “Tenang” moves automatically to get and send the fetus images. The obstetrician checks them by the image reconstruction system.
● Online service : The obstetrician can get the fetus images on demand by controlling “Tenang.”
Also the image/voice communication offers a sense of safety to the obstetrician and the pregnant woman.
● Offline service : No effects by the communication delay.
With the image reconstruction system, the obstetrician gets the arbitrary images.
● Actualization of auto-prenatal care service can reduce the waiting time in the crowded hospital
● The image reconstruction system could be utilized for obstetrician training
