What do surgeons expect from a surgical operating microscope?
They expect sharp images, flexibility, ease-of-use, optimum maneuverability, connectivity with other devices in the OR and high-quality video and recording systems.
What key factors should be taken into consideration when choosing a surgical operating microscope?
When choosing a surgical microscope keep in mind the following aspects: quality of the optics of the operating microscope, illumination design featuring low-light-concepts for increased patient safety, ergonomic design with adjustable binoculars, workflow support, connectivity with other devices in the OR, and hygiene aspects.
What advantages are gained from innovations for surgical microscopy?
Recent developments from Leica Microsystems for surgical operating microscopes include:
- Digital Augmented Reality Microscope ARveo 8 – aiding surgical visualization with AR technologies
- Augmented Reality Fluorescence GLOW800 – visualizing blood flow in real-time imposed onto the surgical field
- Fluorescence Filter Modules FL400, FL560, and FL800 – enhancing surgical insights and aiding decision making
- Exoscopic Surgery with 3D 4K-Heads-Up-Display (HUD) – increasing ergonomics in the OR, opening up new surgical operating approaches, and improving visualization for the entire OR staff
- FusionOptics technology for less refocusing during surgery- providing detailed images with enhanced depth-of-field
- Specialized illumination concepts for stable red reflex – increasing confidence during all phases of cataract surgery
- Built-in optical coherence tomography (OCT) in the Proveo 8 – providing greater insight by revealing sub-surface tissue details during eye surgery
- Smart light-management concepts, BrightCare Plus - increasing patient safety and viewing comfort for surgeons working under less light intensity
What does a surgeon expect from a first-rate surgical microscope? – Top-class imaging quality and the greatest possible freedom of movement.
