This is a great way to get MD's into underserved areas IMHO. It will NOT work in out litegious society but for underserved areas like Africa it may be a godsend. It by no means replaces actualyl having an MD on hand, but may help with specialists and the like

In a consulting room at the Black Lion teaching hospital in Ethiopia's capital, Addis Ababa, a pregnant woman lies on a couch, while an ultrasound image is taken of her baby.

Nearby, a doctor watches, as the image appears on a computer screen in front of him.

It's a scene that can be found in hospitals worldwide.

But what is special about this consulting room is that as the image appears here, it appears simultaneously on a similar computer screen at the Care Hospital, a specialist hospital in Hyderabad in southern India
