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.
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.”
