MedicalTek, an imaging systems manufacturer, developed MonoStereo 3D, claimed to be the world’s first and only endoscope visualization system.
With easy-set and easy-alter adjustable 3D effects, the new MonoStereo system features an advanced 3D technology that overcomes the limitations of conventional 3D systems and offers new aspect on surgical imaging. This system enables surgeons to switch images from 2D to 3D, as well as switch the 3D effect with five-level disparity either by hands or by feet. The new system allows critical anatomical views in 2D and 3D with free to choice disparity, which is not possible with traditional MIS.
The 3D image with adjustable disparity offers customized 3D effects to serve different eye movement and visual perception of each surgeon at different operating environments. The MonoStereo visualization system has been designed to provide stereo visualization from monoscopic image during the minimally invasive surgery. MonoStereo 3D requires to connect with 2D endoscopic system and display with a 3D monitor.
The operators can wear the 3D glasses to secure better feedback in real-time during the surgery procedures.
AITS/IRCAD Taiwan director Wayne Huang said: “We are glad to embrace the ultimate solution.
“Those frequent complaint about 3D surgical image systems such as surgeons’ fatigue, dizzy, alleviates significantly through the adjustable 3D effects.”
