With the use of real-time systems, medical processes could be optimized, because data could be provided right in time when it is needed and it could be continuously updated. This would affect both, the results, as well as their representation and mediation in the full impact of treatment.
In the thesis REALTIME RESULTS it is examined in which way the use of real-time technologies would have impact on patients and physicians, as well as their medical practices and procedures to become sensitized for upcoming opportunities and risks in using and dealing with this technology in the field of medical results.
For the design of medical products that use real-time techmologies three priorities derived. These will be applied in practical applications, for example in the field of diagnostic imaging to show possible intersections, connections and effects of this technology on people, medical products and the medical system. The result of this work should inspire future medical product developments or environments that want to integrate real-time technologies.
