The National Library of Medicine (NLM), Internet2, and the Metropolitan Research and Education Network (MREN) are collaborating to present a series of tutorials and demonstrations of advanced networking technology and its future application in the healthcare arena. The tutorials and demos—taking place at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) in Chicago on November 28 to December 3—will provide attendees with interactive access to these advanced technologies, while highlighting their relevance to the practice of medicine. The Internet2/NLM tutorials and demos will be part of the infoRAD exhibit space at RSNA. The infoRAD area is designed to showcase the most innovative technology solutions in an interactive, educational environment. MREN provides the high-speed link from McCormick Place to Internet2's Abilene Network, allowing radiologists and researchers to get hands-on experience with high-performance networking applications that show promise for the future of medical education and practice. McCormick Place is the first convention facility to have permanent Internet2 capabilities.
