The RATEMA project is an international cooperation between the University of Ulm in Germany and the Urals Research Centre for Radiation Medicine in Chelyabinsk, Russia. For one year we conducted weekly conferences between the two sites, based on a satellite link with a 384 kbit/s connection. During the videoconferences the physicians on both sides-experts in radiation medicine-discussed the health status of Russian patients who had been chronically exposed to ionizing radiation in the South Urals region. The German partners presented patients with comparable haematological and oncological diseases. The project has shown the advantages and difficulties of working in an international and interdisciplinary environment. The experience gained has been very valuable for planning new projects with similar tasks. The results and the contents of the RATEMA database are the basis for education and research for physicians involved in the management of radiation victims.
