The world of technology is slowly transitioning to 5G, and the healthcare industry is expected to be one of the sectors that will largely benefit from the move. Intel's general manager of advanced 5G technologies, Robert Topol, said on Thursday that 5G will have various applications in the healthcare setting. At the start, such applications will be limited to non-invasive ones, Digitimes has learned. According to Topol, the medical applications of 5G technology will be felt mostly in telemedicine especially in telehealth, teleconsultation, telesurgery demonstration and other procedures that employ a non-invasive approach. Topol said Intel is optimistic that 5G will usher in a new period of transformation in areas that do not involve the use of instruments and apparatuses being inserted in the patient's body.
