The woman named Mao suffered from breast cancer and is being treated at the hospital of Phokou District, Ho Chi Minh City. Nanjing, Jiangsu, China.
At 9:00 am on July 3, doctors, led by Jiang Ping, prepared a cancer surgery for Ms. Mao. Especially, the main surgeon Tang Jinghai, a breast cancer specialist, is not available at the hospital, but directs the surgical procedures and removes the cancer for patients from a distance of more than 20 km.
With the help of 5G network and mixed reality technology, the signal transmission is smooth and stable throughout the procedure. Tang is responsible for describing and instructing surgeons to know where to approach. All questions and instructions are transmitted in real time. Two hours after surgery, the tumor was completely removed.
Tang said that 5G technology and mixed reality will help central hospitals to transfer technology and closely link to lower hospitals. Being able to connect and chat in real time helps doctors easily exchange experiences, share more complex cures.
Earlier, the hospital also succeeded in surgery remotely with 5G technology and mixed reality on May 13.
Or in January 2019, a surgeon in Fujian Province, China performed the first remote surgery in the world with 5G technology. The surgery place where the doctor was about 64km away and the shift that day successfully removed the liver of the experimental animal with supportive arms.
In theory, the transmission speed of 5G network is 10-20 times faster than 4G and only about a few milliseconds late. Meanwhile, the latency of 4G network is tens of milliseconds.
5G technology promises to help treat patients in remote areas where there is no access to modern treatment facilities.
