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 for Microscopes

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.
