4K Operating Room Technology Advancing, Despite Initial Doubts

Surgical visualization is a key tool in the operating room. While this technology has traditionally been used for diagnostic procedures that required endoscopy, it also has useful applications in minimally invasive procedures. As the minimally invasive approach continues to become standard procedure, demand for surgical visualization equipment will continue to rise. To achieve proper visualization of the lumen, a large array of medical devices is needed. An endoscopic tower typically houses all the hardware needed to produce an accurate video feed. This video equipment then is integrated with the rest of the equipment in the operating room using a high-tech router. As video resolution has progressed from...
