3D surgical microscopes by Leica Microsystems and TrueVision 3D Surgical

Leica M720 OH5 and Leica M525 OH4 3D surgical microscopes from Leica Microsystems, with TrueVision 3D Surgical stereoscopic high-definition visualization system technology

The Leica M720 OH5 and Leica M525 OH4 3D surgical microscopes from Leica Microsystems (Wetzlar, Germany) feature TrueVision 3D Surgical (Santa Barbara, CA) stereoscopic high-definition visualization technology. By incorporating the 3D system inside the two microscope models, the two companies have eliminated the need for a separate 3D cart. Control of 3D recording functions, without interrupting workflow, is possible via microscope hand and foot controls.

PRESS RELEASE

Leica Microsystems Debuts First 3D Surgical Microscopes with TrueVision® Technology Inside, at AANS Annual Meeting in New Orleans

Surgeons Benefit from Easy 3D Recording and Video Editing, More Space to Maneuver in the Operating Room and Upgradable Platform for Future Surgical Guidance Applications

Wetzlar, Germany / Santa Barbara, CA, USA. Leica Microsystems and TrueVision® 3D Surgical announced the debut of 3D surgical microscopes at the 81st Annual Scientific Meeting of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS). By incorporating the digital smart 3D system inside select models of Leica Microsystems’ surgical microscopes, Leica Microsystems and TrueVision® have eliminated the need for a separate 3D cart. Surgeons can control the 3D recording functions, without interrupting their workflow, via the microscope hand and foot controls, and OR staff will benefit from easier, faster setup and more space to maneuver in the operating room. The TrueVision® 3D platform is also upgradable to support future surgical guidance applications.

Leica Microsystems will be presenting two 3D microscope systems, the Leica M720 OH5 and Leica M525 OH4 with TrueVision® technology inside at this year’s Annual Scientific Meeting of the AANS in New Orleans, April 27th to May 1st, 2013. Surgeons will be able to preview the systems during AANS exhibit hours in Leica Microsystems’ booth #639. On Monday and Tuesday April 29th and 30th, 9:15 am, Burton Tripathi, PhD, CTO and EVP of TrueVision, will be presenting “Digital Convergence: Bringing 3D Imaging to Neurosurgery” in the Leica exhibit theater in booth #639.

Eoghan O’Lionaird, President, Leica Microsystems, commented: “These 3D surgical microscopes are the result of a very fruitful collaboration between Leica Microsystems and TrueVision. The products represent another milestone in Leica Microsystems’ history of technological innovation in the field of surgical microscopy. For the first time ever, neurosurgeons will have access to a surgical microscope with a fully integrated, digital 3D system built inside.”

“At MD Anderson, world-class neurosurgical education has been elevated by the incorporation of Leica and TrueVision 3D,” says Dr. Nicholas B. Levine, Professor of Neurosurgery at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas. “I can seamlessly transition between 2D and 3D recording, editing and teaching. I look forward to the introduction of TrueVision’s smart guidance applications for the 3D platform to complement and extend existing technologies used in the OR today.”

Leica Microsystems is a world leader in microscopes and scientific instruments. Founded as a family business in the nineteenth century, the company’s history was marked by unparalleled innovation on its way to becoming a global enterprise.

Its historically close cooperation with the scientific community is the key to Leica Microsystems’ tradition of innovation, which draws on users’ ideas and creates solutions tailored to their requirements. At the global level, Leica Microsystems is organized in three divisions, all of which are among the leaders in their respective fields: the Life Science Division, Industry Division and Medical Division.

The company is represented in over 100 countries with six manufacturing facilities in five countries, sales and service organizations in 20 countries, and an international network of dealers. The company is headquartered in Wetzlar, Germany. www.leica-microsystems.com

TrueVision® 3D Surgical is the world leader in digital 3D visualization and guidance for microsurgery. Santa Barbara, California-based TrueVision® has developed and patented an intelligent, real-time, 3D surgical visualization and computer-aided guidance platform. The system enables surgeons to record surgery in 3D and to stream live video of the surgical field, making it an unparalleled teaching tool. The company is focused on developing a suite of 3D guidance applications for microsurgery to improve surgical efficiencies and patient outcomes. The system is in use at hundreds of hospitals and institutions around the world. www.truevisionsys.com
