AbstractAs an enabling technology for sharing data and computing power, the cloud has brought significant changes to many industries, including the medical and healthcare sector. With 5G on the horizon, ultra-fast and low-latency data transmission on the cloud and via the will enable more intelligent and interactive medical and health applications. This chapter presents a survey of 5G technologies and their related medical and healthcare applications. Not to overwhelm readers with 5G details, it starts with constraints confronted by traditional medicare applications to induce the benefits of cloud computing. Then the medical-imaging application is employed as a central example to explain the impacts of the cloud and 5G. In addition, a variety of healthcare applications that will benefit from 5G are introduced. For advanced readers who are curious about technologies, we also provide details of 5G in the latter half of the chapter, including the software-defined network, 5G architecture, and edge computing.
