TrueVision Systems Announces a 3D Vision System
For Teaching Ophthalmologic Microsurgery
TrueVision® Microsurgery Teaching System is
the First 3D, High-Definition, Real-Time, Digital Vision System
LAS VEGAS (November 11, 2006) — TrueVision Systems introduced
the TrueVision® Microsurgery Teaching System at the 2006
American Academy of Ophthalmology Annual Meeting.
TrueVision® is a revolutionary 3D vision system for microscopes
that frees users from looking through eyepieces. It is an ideal
teaching and collaboration tool for Ophthalmology and many other
disciplines where a microscope is used allowing everyone to see
the same image as if they were looking into the microscope. The
optical 3D image viewed through the microscope is converted by
TrueVision® to a 3D, high-definition digital image that is
displayed on a projection screen in real time transforming stereomicroscopes
into more ergonomic and collaborative devices.
TrueVision® can be used for any application where a stereomicroscope
is used and is ideal for medical schools and teaching hospitals.
It has been utilized successfully for both teaching microsurgery
and surgical procedures, including cataract surgery, where the
surgeons and the assistants never looked into eyepieces.
"TrueVision will revolutionize the way microsurgery is
performed and taught", said Forrest Fleming, TrueVision Systems
CEO. "The initial response by surgeons has been phenomenal.
They immediately see how it can benefit them in many of their surgical
procedures and for teaching."
TrueVision® features modern digital imaging capabilities
allowing users to integrate 3D images from the microscope with
other medical digital image sources such as surgical planning,
CT, and MRI data. It features the ability to save and retrieve
images and video at the touch of a button for record keeping, documentation,
and sharing without giving up the resolution, color, and stereo
depth found in the original optical image.
The TrueVision® Microsurgery Teaching System consists of
a plug and play, portable, ergonomic cart with everything needed
to transport and run TrueVision®. It integrates a large screen
rear projection system and all the TrueVision® components
with a workstation on wheels ideal for easy placement in an operating
room, classroom or lab. It can be retrofitted to your existing
stereomicroscope by replacing the eyepiece module with the TrueVision
Image Capture Module.
