Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) Okinawa Prefecture consists of tens of islands scattered over the large ocean with 120,000 populations. Once serious emergencies are reported from those islands, the only feasible method is to transfer those patients to mother hospitals by helicopters with appropriate decision and primary care. We strongly believe that telemedicine such as ICT technology is indispensable for further advancement of the medical services of those islands. A doctor in Yonaguni island has already started teleradiology to consult with doctors in his Alma mater in deciding treatment. The speakers are working on researches for practical implementation of these systems via satellite and terrestrial communications.
