We have been studying the technologizing and digitalization of skill of the medical professional in the medical diagnosis and therapy. The concept of technologizing and digitalization of medical skills is to extract functions in medical skills, reconstruct and implement those extracted functions in the mechanism/controller of the medical support system. In this paper, we explain a robot vision technology for technologizing and digitalization of medical diagnostic and therapeutic skills for the evaluation system of the post operative pericardial adhesion using cardioechography and remote ultrasound diagnostic system.
