LEVERAGING CLOUD COMPUTING FOR TELEMEDICINE: ADVANCES IN MEDICAL IMAGE COMPRESSION, SECURITY, AND SAFETY
Keywords:Cloud Computing; Compression Techniques; Medical Image; Telemedicine; Security and Safety.
Telemedicine has revolutionized healthcare delivery by providing remote medical consultations. This study explores the role of cloud computing in enabling telemedicine, with a particular focus on the utilization of medical image compression techniques and ensuring robust security and safety measures. The integration of cloud computing with telemedicine offers numerous advantages including scalable storage, flexible computing resources, and improved accessibility to medical data and applications. One critical aspect of telemedicine is the transmission and analysis of medical images such as X-rays, CT scans, and MRIs. However, the large size of these images can pose challenges in terms of the transmission speed and storage capacity. To address this, medical image are employed to reduce the size of images without a significant loss of diagnostic information. Security and safety are paramount in telemedicine systems, particularly when dealing with sensitive patient data and medical images. Cloud computing provides a robust infrastructure for ensuring data security and privacy, enabling the secure transmission and storage of medical images. This abstract discusses the implementation of encryption, access-control mechanisms, and authentication protocols to safeguard patient data during transmission and storage in the cloud. By leveraging cloud computing technologies, telemedicine can overcome geographical barriers and enhance healthcare accessibility for patients and healthcare professionals. Exploration of these topics will contribute to improving the efficiency, reliability, and quality of telemedicine services, ultimately leading to better patient outcomes and increased healthcare accessibility in both urban and rural settings.
