With the development of network technology and intelligent robot technology, Robot-assisted teleultrasound has played an important role in clinical fields. The application of real-time remote ultrasound technology has made the ultrasonic diagnosis break through the limitation of time and space distance, and solved the problem of shortage of medical resources to a certain extent. This article introduces the development and application basis of robot-assisted teleultrasound, summarizes the clinical application status, and discusses the advantages and limitations of its current application. In addition, we discuss the value in application scenario, interventional therapy and intracavitary ultrasound in the future.
