Back to the future: Telemedicine as envisioned in 1924


Above, the cover of the April 1924 issue of Radio News, "circulation larger than any other radio publication," edited by Hugo Gernsback.

It appears on page 50 of the December 2009 issue of Anesthesiology News, where it accompanies a continuation of Larry Beresford's front page story, "Telemedicine Helps Guide Long Distance Intubation."

Alas, the picture's not included with the web version of the article.

Before getting out my scanner, just for the heck of it I put "radio news april 1924" in the Google Images search box and lo and behold, there it was, the first result.

Turns out Boing Boing's Mark Fraunfelder featured it on April 4, 2005.

Like I said: back to the future.
