We have developed a teleconsultation system to support cooperation between doctors at different institutions in the acquisition, analysis and reporting of ultrasound studies. All the relevant activities were supported by the application. The system enabled remote supervision of the ultrasound study as it was being performed, cooperative static image acquisition and analysis, as well as report writing. Cooperative analysis of previously acquired studies was also possible. The system is undergoing evaluation in five hospitals in Portugal.
