In a university hospital in Tokyo is a globally-unique operating room called the Hyper SCOT, equipped with the latest digital technology. Data from 20 medical devices are integrated in real time and shown on a monitor during surgery. It has been used for difficult brain tumor surgeries since opening 2 years ago. Doctors outside the operating room can see the monitor and give the surgeon advice, for a more accurate surgery. Separately, another university is using virtual reality to help students learn.
