Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to design and implement mobile telemedicine system applications for telediagnosis using Multimedia Message Service (MMS) technology. The development process consists of two components, namely client-side and server-side applications. On the client-side, adapted compression and splitting techniques are used to perform mobile multimedia computing and to enhance the capability of MMS technology in message delivery. On the server-side, merging and decompressing techniques as well as mobile telemedicine applications are developed and implemented which are required for telediagnosis. The proposed techniques on the client and server sides ensure that the quality of data is preserved which is critical for accomplishing the diagnosis process. The experimental results show that the proposed framework can be used to develop a practical mobile telemedicine system.

Keywords: mobile telemedicine; MMS; multimedia message service; multimedia communications; telediagnosis; multimedia message; client-server application; medical diagnosis; healthcare technology.
