Remote mammography exams in Sweden, powered by Telia Company

There are about 700,000 mammography examinations performed in Sweden each year. Often, there is a long distance to be travelled for doing the screenings. As a consequence, one in five women misses the crucial mammography appointments.
Here is where 5G can make a difference: a mammography wagon brings testing facilities to the local environment of citizens by physically coming closer to their premises. The examination pictures are then transmitted over the 5G network, shortening the travel and waiting time for many citizens who otherwise could not take the test.

We will discuss this and more 5G healthcare use cases on 8 September, here a link for more info.
