Richard Wolf defines a new quality of imaging in full-endoscopic spine surgery. With the new generation of camera systems, very small and fine structures can be clearly identified and differentiated.
Recognizing details is important for spine surgery. A clear, meaningful picture permitting the identification of structures is a prerequisite for a safe surgery. Thanks to state-of-the-art video technology, Richard Wolf's camera systems make the finest structures appear sharp and clear.
The new 4K camera system from Richard Wolf provides the latest in image technology for endoscopic spine surgery. A brilliant visual impression improves the spatial orientation and depth effect and facilitates the surgical procedure in spine surgery.
Special Imaging Modes (SIM) algorithms additionally help to improve tissue differentiation depending on surgical requirements.
The new 4K Camera System from Richard Wolf defines a new quality of imaging in full-endoscopic spine surgery. 4K provides a significantly higher resolution of the endoscopic image compared with the existing HD standard. As a result, very small and fine structures can be clearly displayed and identified. The richness of detail leads to an almost three-dimensional visual impression so that the spatial orientation and depth effect are improved.
The VERTEBRIS endoscopes generate a uniformly illuminated image with sharp margins. The power of the LED light source and the optimized light fiber complements the new increase in camera resolution. New manufacturing technology allows the ergonomically styled metallic camera head to be lightweight and ideal for steam sterilization. Multiple signal processesing options are available and operate at a full 4K resolution.
Recognizing details is absolutely crucial in minimally invasive spine surgery. A clear, informative image is a prerequisite for delivering safe treatment. The HD technology means that the Richard Wolf camera systems are capable of producing sharp images of the most delicate structures. The HD systems meet the needs of the most discerning endoscopic user, from the endoscope to digital transmission, display, and storage of images.
Digital camera heads, intelligent LED light sources, efficient light cables and brilliant monitors are central components of the new generation of highest quality Richard Wolf camera systems.
"Special Imaging Modes" (SIM) provide digitally processed visualization that is enhanced from standard, natural white-light imaging.
Six new Special Imaging Modes are available are selectable by the user. These are special image-processing algorithms that can be helpful for improving tissue differentiation depending on the situation. Once a SIM is selected, it can be activated by the press of a button on the camera head. No additional hardware is required for SIM.
HDR High describes the use of the entire dynamic range of the image material. Dark image areas are lightened, while very bright, over-exposed areas are darkened. The overall effect is a more uniform brightness that displays more information in over-illuminated and boundary areas of the endoscopic image.
The Color Contrast Modes strengthen color contrasts incrementally and use preset color shifts in order to highlight these enhanced areas even further.
