The unique positioning of the HD camera lens in the center of the optic is ideal for capturing the image from the surgeon’s point of view, especially important for minimally invasive procedures assuring that what the surgeon sees is always on the monitor. The viewer will see a highly dimensional picture of the surgical site with the entire field of view in focus and evenly illuminated. The ability of the staff to see exactly what the surgeon sees is an invaluable tool in the operating room.
How does this product benefit the surgical team and aid in better outcomes?
The ability of the OR staff to see exactly what the surgeon sees during a surgical procedure is extremely valuable, especially in minimally invasive procedures. The staff can easily follow the procedure and can respond quickly to the surgeon’s needs in real time. The highly dimensional picture provided by the coaxial positioned camera assures the team will be able to see the surgical site as it is seen by the surgeon. For teaching purposes, presentations, and real-time viewing in the OR, there is nothing else that compares.
