In medical facilities, mobile devices provide the medium for remote diagnosis and information retrieval. Mobile devices aid medical personnel by allowing them to access information ubiquitously. The medical doctor or radiologist may use his mobile device to view patient's medical images. But security and privacy is the major issue for such type of remote diagnosis. The existing system does not support remote diagnosis over mobile communication network. Therefore, in the proposed system remote diagnosis is supported, where a doctor can verify the medical images in his mobile device, though he is far away from the patient. This telemedicine application requires authentication for safe transmission.
