脳神経外科は、継続的に、そして迅速に開発が行われている専門分野なので、しばしば新しいテクノロジーに関する先駆者の役割を果たします。1 新しいテクノロジーに対する親和性に加え、年々上昇する症例数と手術の結果に対する患者様の高まる期待感が、脳神経外科における推進力になっています。1

VITOM® 3D – 3D Visualization for Neurosurgery

The VITOM® 3D system provides a solution for the visualization of microsurgical and open surgical interventions. Application possibilities are similar to that of the operating microscope.1 The system is controlled via the IMAGE1 PILOT which is mounted on the OR table in close proximity to the surgeon.

  • Smaller, lighter and more compact than an operating microscope2
  • Lower acquisition costs and creates synergistic effects with endoscopy by using the same video tower – thus combining the benefits of endoscopy and microscopy1
  • Ergonomic work – the user is not confined to the eyepiece1
  • Improved workflow – the OR team can view the procedure in the same image quality as the surgeon1
