Medical Working Group Sessions
Chair : Shuji Shimizu (Kyushu University Hospital, Japan) [shimizu AT surg1.med.kyushu-u.ac.jp]
Abstract : Closed Medical Network on Mobile Network, and international coordination

Medical networking always comes to the security issue, when using internet for the patient information transfer. Recently, many institutes are concering of using the internet/mobile access and cloud technologies. This year, Kyoto University has started secure mobile network on WiMAX connecting to Campus LAN for students and staffs with the collaboration with SINET, UQ-WiMAX and KDDI.. We are now constructing medical version of this network, for mobile use of medical information. We are also thinking of using this network for even institutional connection. Also, we are planning of expanding this network through APAN network for international medical networking.

Technology session: Challenge of MCU for DVTS: DVTS-plus versus Quatre connecting 16 stations

Can DVTS-plus make easy? DVTS plus has made some New features: include Web based client (XTML5), MJPEG codec rewritten, Echo cancellation, Instant chat, More stable Conference Center and distributed Transmitters. We would like invite 16 sites join together in this videoconference system at 35th APAN, and demonstration this new features. Our goal is provide an easy tool for medical WG to setup a videoconference for future exchange activity.

Healthcare 1: Nano Technology and Cancer

Cyber-lab environment based on superspeed research network can be applied to medicine in 3 ways: basic research, clinical research and public health. Nano and Cancer session shows IT applied to basic medical science. By sharing recent research experiences of nano technology and cancer in the Asia-Pacific area and strengthening relationship among researchers, this session helps advance creative researches in the fusion age.

Healthcare 2: eHealth and Medical Serious Games

Cyber-lab environment based on superspeed research network can be applied to medicine in 3 ways: basic research, clinical research and public health. This session is organized to increase relationship between doctors and patients in the course of treatment and rehabilitation by making them understandable and interesting to patients. Medical treatment, especially combined with IT, is recognized as cold and mechanical, thus preventing digital medical care from expanding. This session will introduce applications of various game techniques to medical care in the form of live demos in order to show that digital medicine is warm and interesting. In addition, participants will experience the effectiveness of superspeed research network in making such games.

Endoscopy-1: Endoscopy Case Teleconference

With rapid development of endoscopic skills and equipment, endoscopy became the key technology for the diagnosis and treatment of gastrointestinal disease. However, each center has limited case volume and experiences. Endoscopy case teleconference can serve as a platform for sharing the cases and experiences and every center can learn from other center’s cases and can get feedback to their endoscopy case. Each center will prepare one case which is related to endoscopic technology and present a case during the conference. Other centers will give some feedback or share their own experiences. Thereby every center will learn from the case and discussion. Each center will have about 15~20 minutes for case presentation and discussion and the total session time will be 90 minutes. Endoscopy case teleconference has been held continuously during APAN meeting and the response from each center is very good and participating centers are very active for this session.

Surgery: New surgical approaches and techniques: their impact on thoracic surgery

Gastrointetinal endoscopy is a powerful tool for detecting and characterizing early gastrointestinal neoplasia. Numerous advanced imaging techniques have been launched from Japan in order to enhance the early endoscopic diagnosis of neoplasia. However, it is unclear how and which techniques were applied in the clinical practice in different countries. We would like to clarify the current situations, problems and future prospect in Latin America. Briefly, the discussion should be based on case conferences showing their endoscopic techniques and findings using video/still images in order to demonstrate which endoscopic modality they are applying to clinical practice. Furthermore, we would outline the differences in disease spectrum among different counties. And, then finally, we would like to conclude which practical efforts should be made to improve people’s welfare in their own countries. This is a very good opportunity to challenge a live teleconference between endoscopists in Japan and in Latin America since we can communicate easily and frankly on the Internet using high-resolution endoscopic images. We consider that such a live conference based on real practice could be indeed exciting and may take a key role to initiate clinical trials if we could clarify the current situations in this field.

Healthcare 3: Public Health Informatics

Cyber-lab environment based on superspeed research network can be applied to medicine in 3 ways: basic research, clinical research and public health. Public Health Informatics session will introduce how various information of patients produced by a hospital can become big data, and these big data gathered from hospitals can be related and reproduced into other data such as job, salary or community nutrient data. It will also show how these related big data can be analysed from different views, and can be used for interests of the citizen. Through this process, the public will realize superspeed research network greatly help them understand the analysis and result of big data by visualizing them.

Cardiology: Live education of interventional cardiovascular medicine

The cardiovascular intervention was started in 1977 by Andreas Gruentzig, To make this procedure more common, he selected the live transmission educational method. Currently, we continue doing this educational activity in each country. However, the technology of devices for interventional cardiology is now progressing very rapidly and we think this kind of educational activity is necessary between different countries. In APAN 2013 meeting, we will have the 2nd teleconference among Asian Pacific countries with experiences interventional cardiologists. We are going to discuss various possibility of telemedicine for the cardiovascular interventional education.
