Telemedicine Predicted in 1925?

Jay Parkinson, MD found a great picture showing that telemedicine was predicted in 1925.

Do you remember the video in which Arthur C. Clarke described how future doctors in Edinburgh could operate patients in New Zealand? Back in 1964? What about our own predictions for the future?

  1. Dear Scienceroll,
    This question may be a little off-topic, Physician shortage? Yes, it is prevalent now in many areas of the United States, such as Texas and will be a significant problem in the years ahead. In 2006 sixty percent of the population believed there was already a physician shortage and sixty six percent agreed the problem would worsen over the next ten years. Currently the United States has a lower mid range physician to population level compared to many other countries. Korea for example, has the lowest physician to population level and Greece has the highest.
    Great Job!
