Real time telemedicine could be as simple as a telephone call or as complex as robotic surgery. It requires that both parties be present at the same time and a communications link that would allow a real-time interaction to take place. Video-conferencing equipment can be used to assist the physician in an interactive examination. For instance use of a webcam to examine a skin rash or visible condition. Use of Video and Teleconferencing technologies have evolved considerably each year within different universities, medical centers and hospitals using cameras and teleconferencing technologies to communicate with large groups of people at distant locations. Many teachers in major universities are using Videoconferencing technologies to reach thousands of students belonging to their universities in their country or in other nations.
