MEDICA 2014: 3-chip technology allows high-resolution … – PresseBox (press release)

         The 3D technology could not prevail in the medical field for a long time. The quality of three-dimensional images was just for the relevant application area in laparoscopic surgery often not sufficient. The prevailing “Chip-On-The-Tip” systems are here technical limits due to their physical properties. Be transferred with the 3-chip HD technology in which two 3-chip HD sensors, the images in the so-called High Definition Standard (Full HD), this technical hurdle is overcome. Richard Wolf has brought the “ENDOCAM Epic 3DHD” a camera system with this new technology on the market, the practical application of the company’s existing nationwide presenting to interested surgeons in the operating room. At MEDICA, the system and its applications on the company’s stand (Hall 10, Stand 41) will be presented.

The high-resolution images of the new 3D technology make it possible to operate with great precision in increasingly complex procedures and improve surgical outcomes. “Three-dimensional imaging is required in laparoscopy where it comes to the best possible natural representation of the surgical site. The clinical everyday life shows a actually increasing demand and add value to both physicians and patients,” explains Jürgen Steinbeck, Managing Director of Richard Wolf GmbH .

ENDOCAM Epic 3DHD provides three-dimensional images in high-definition quality, with a resolution of detail, which are very close to the natural spatial vision. Through the presentation of the entire surgical field with the distortion-Play of tissue structures in their actual spatial location visceral surgeons, urologists and gynecologists is a precise eye-hand coordination possible. The high image quality also allows for longer operations, a more relaxed working.

In the operating room ENDOCAM Epic 3DHD comes with large 32-inch 3D screens of the latest generation are used. For presentations and the subsequent consideration of the surgeon can take to engage with the system at the same time on a USB stick in 3D. These recordings are then playable on most 3D TVs with USB port.

The Richard Wolf GmbH is a medium-sized medical device company with over 1,500 employees worldwide and fourteen branches and 130 foreign representatives. The company develops, manufactures and markets a variety of products for endoscopy and extracorporeal shock wave treatment in human medicine. Integrated operating systems complete the product portfolio.
