The world of information technology is in continuous evolution. In the past few decades, several hardware and software technology changed each other to achieve a more advanced level of IT. Thanks to this successive innovation, today we can hold almost everything which was previously only available with computers, in our hands as mobile phones.
In the past two decades we have also seen this enormous evolution on the Internet. Because of the spread of broadband Internet and the smartphones, the need has arisen for reaching the broadband Internet from mobiles as well. By achieving this, the world opened to the mobiles and to the mobile applications too.
By the development of mobile phones, the mobile platforms were evolved rapidly. Among these platforms, the Android platform has become one of the most common one, this is the reason why my thesis work is based on the Android platform.
The aim of this project was to create a medical diagnostic system, which can help the communication between the doctors and the patients with no bounds. With the help of this system the patient can reach a doctor with a problem, with which he has never gone to the doctor before.
Picturing is one of the most important parts of medical diagnostics. Picture and other data analysis can be done when the patient is not there as well. These tasks are closely related to the multimedia features of the smartphone. That is why the theme of this thesis, is that how can the multimedia features of the smartphone help the operation of a medical diagnostic system, and how can these features help the communication between doctors and patients.
Among the function of the system, we can find taking pictures, capturing videos and sounds, replaying the recorded media files, and sharing these media files with other peoples. Furthermore we can make and check charts and graphs of the medical state of patients; we can also share our experience with others, and use other communication options.
