Project Overview
Attendees at the 2014 Internet2 Global Summit were given the rare opportunity to witness two streaming surgeries from across the world. Live liver and kidney operations from the RUTE, Brazil’s “Telemedicine University Network” (RUTE) and the Czech Republic Education and Scientific NETwork (CESNET) demonstrated the power of ultra high-definition (HD) video conferencing and advanced networking applied to the field of medicine. In a collaboration between the RUTE network and Interent2 connected high school, community college and technical school students will be able to view and learn from a live streaming surgical procedure. Stay tuned for more details this summer.
