Written by Shayna Korol | March 12, 2019 | Print  |

Sony Electronics' Healthcare Solutions will showcase new surgical technology solutions at the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons Annual Meeting, March 13-15 in Las Vegas.

Solutions include:

1. Sony's Content Management System, which offers a centralized platform for managing surgical videos and stills. The system allows for network-based searching, editing, storage and distribution of 4K, 3D, and HD video obtained from Sony medical recorders and other compatible recording devices. Live surgical procedures can be streamed through the system.

2. NUCLeUS, an integrated IP-based digital operating room platform, features three Smart App Tools. The Telestration Tool allows surgeons to annotate video streams remotely and share the annotations in real-time with the OR; the Vascularization App gives providers a highlighted view of vascular structures; and the Stabilization App is designed to compensate for shifts in the orientation of video from handheld endoscopic camera systems. NUCLeUS is designed to complement Sony's Content Management System through sharing video images and other patient-related data.

3. The new LMD-X2705MD and LMD-X2700MD 27-inch 4K medical monitors with increased resolution for detailed monitoring of endoscopes and surgical microscopes intraoperatively. The 4K imagery is designed to provide greater visualization during and after a surgical procedure

4. The medical 4K/3D recorder HVO-4000MT records 4K and 3D, and supports HD video and stills simultaneously. The recorder captures long-form video from 4K cameras focused on the operating field and allows for surgical video sharing. It features a 4TB internal hard drive and can connect to a network, so images can be uploaded and viewed by providers outside of the operating room.

5. Sony's digital color printer UP-DR80MD with WU-10 wireless print system features Sony's dye sublimation technology to produce photo-quality prints for medical applications. The optional wireless print system enables cable-free connection between the UP-DR80MD and surgical endoscopes, ultrasound systems and other hospital imaging modalities.
