Abstract

Small cell networks are expected to be an integral part of future 5G networks in order to meet the increasingly high user demands for traffic volume, frequency efficiency, and energy and cost reductions. Small cell networks can play an important role in enhancing the Quality of Service (QoS) and Quality of Experience (QoE) in mobile health (m-health) applications, and in particular, in medical video streaming. This paper presents content-aware and device-aware medical Quality of Experience evaluations in terms of subjective (e.g. MOS) and objective (e.g. PSNR and SSIM) quality metrics obtained over small cell networks. Furthermore, we address the following two main research questions: (1) How significant is ultrasound video content type in determining medical QoE? (2) How much of a role does the display device play in medical experts’ diagnostic experience? The former is answered through the content classification of ultrasound video sequences based on their spatio-temporal features and validating their significance through medical experts’ subjective ratings. The latter is answered by conducting a subjective experiment of the ultrasound video sequences across multiple devices, ranging in screen size and resolution.
