Use of telemedicine in neuro intervention practice
A decade ago, telemedicine was considered a cumbersome and unattainable technology, but now the rapid development of telecommunications provides the basis for its dissemination as a reliable and useful direction in treatment. This method of medical care has recently begun to be used in Ukraine.
Interventional neuroradiology is one of the most technologically advanced and leading areas of modern medicine with a wide range of tools for minimally invasive treatment of various vascular pathologies of the nervous system. Over the past 3 years, due to the restrictions associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as the russian-ukrainian war, cooperation between specialists in this field has become much more complicated. And first of all it concerns the education of the specialists and the introduction of new methods of endovascular treatment in Ukraine. In such conditions, the integration of telemedicine into clinical practice is one of the priorities.
