3D Visualization and Guidance System is a stereoscopic 3D high-definition visualization system that displays the surgical field of view in real-time on 3D flat-panel displays in the operating room. The company is also developing a suite of 3D guidance applications for the platform. These enable the surgeon to operate "heads up" by looking at a large screen with navigation templates fused into the live image, providing better ergonomics and a more immersive visualization experience for the surgeon and staff. The system is also used to record 3D surgical video for educational purposes and presenting on-demand and streaming 3D surgical video content at medical meetings.
