Television has been developed and used extensively at the University of Vermont College of Medicine for consultation, patient care, teaching, and research. Present uses include televised monitoring of fluoroscopic examinations, radiographs, electrocardiograms, microscopic images, teaching conferences, operative procedures, and patients undergoing radiation therapy. Projected plans include the development of a two-way audiovisual transmission between the medical center and peripheral community hospitals for teaching and consultation purposes.
