At the Congress of Neurological Surgeons (CNS) Annual Meeting, October 18 to 22 in Boston, MA, Leica Microsystems will present the latest innovations in neurosurgical microscopy, and reveal a new surgical microscope for neurosurgery—the Leica M530 OH6—for the first time in the United States. Visitors to Leica Microsystems’ booth #325 will have the opportunity to learn more from our specialists and experience the new neurosurgical microscope for themselves. Two leading neurosurgeons will also share their experiences working with Leica Microsystems’ microscopes.
On Monday, October 20, Howard A. Riina, M.D., Professor and Vice Chairman of Neurosurgery and Director of Neurosurgery Residency Training Program at New York University Langone Medical Center, will talk about aneurysm surgery with the new Leica M530 OH6. On Tuesday, October 22, Dr. Cleopatra Charalampaki, neurosurgeon and specialist in the field of brain tumors from the Clinic for Neurosurgery Köln Merheim, will talk about the use of fluorescence with Leica Microsystems’ surgical microscopes.
Microscopes from Leica Microsystems are well known for delivering brilliant illumination and premium optics combined with an ergonomic design that enables surgeons to work in a comfortable position. On Monday, October 20, and Tuesday, October 21, in booth #325, Ohm Savanayana, Director Imaging and Digital Microscopy at Leica Microsystems, will introduce the new Leica M530 OH6 and discuss how it has been designed to take optical and ergonomic benefits to the next level.
The Leica M530 OH6 features FusionOptics technology: By combining high resolution imaging with enhanced depth of field, FusionOptics delivers a larger three-dimensional area in full focus. The 400 W Xenon light and small angle illumination (SAI) further enhances depth perception and visualization even within deep, narrow cavities. The comprehensive ergonomic concept of the Leica M530 OH6 helps surgeons and assistants to maintain a comfortable upright working posture to reduce strain. Additionally, Leica Microsystems’ OpenArchitecture ensures that the microscope can be configured to meet surgical imaging needs today and in the future. "The new Leica M530 OH6 represents the next stage in the evolution of neurosurgical operating microscopes”, says Dr. Riina. “In addition to advanced optics in a more compact head, the OH6 offers improvements for the assistant surgeon with better positioning and fine focus controls. Advances in image guidance integration and 3D video capabilities all maintain the OH6 as the industry standard for neurosurgical operating microscopes."
Leica Microsystems will also present the surgical microscopes Leica M525 OH4 and Leica M720 OH5 with integrated TrueVision Smart 3D surgical visualization and recording inside, and the Leica M525 F50 for neurosurgery and spine.
