IMAGE1 S 3D – A Dimension Ahead

The KARL STORZ 3D system offers the surgeon excellent depth perception. The stereoscopic 3D system is particularly valuable for activities such as suturing and knotting that demand a high degree of spatial perception.

  • Lightweight and ergonomic design
  • Autoclavable endoscope
  • 3D system with video endoscopes in 10 mm diameter and with VITOM® 3D
  • Easy switchover from 3D to 2D
  • Easy integration into the IMAGE1 S platform
  • Three innovative visualization possibilities for easy tissue differentiation: CLARA, CHROMA and SPECTRA – in 2D and 3D

5 mm HOPKINS® Telescopes for Heart Surgery

Imaging systems such as the endoscopy unit are increasingly used to aid cardiovascular surgery. More and more interventions are being performed in a minimally invasive fashion. KARL STORZ offers telescopes with a diameter of 5 mm for this purpose.

  • HOPKINS® rod lens system for best possible image quality
  • Optimal brightness, contrast and detail features
  • Highest imaging fidelity of surface, structure and depth


Visualization System for Open Heart Surgery

The VITOM® system is a complementary solution to OR illumination cameras, loupes and operating microscopes. It offers the possibility to display open surgical procedures in a high quality manner. Moreover, the VITOM® system is an excellent teaching and training aid and is ideally suited for documenting surgical procedures.

  • Optimal application possibilities for heart surgery as well as pediatric heart surgery
  • Visualization with great depth of field and optimal magnification
  • Compact design requiring minimal space in the OR
  • Compatibility with IMAGE1 S camera platform


Visualization System for Open Heart Surgery

The VITOM® 3D system provides many surgical disciplines with a revolutionary solution for the visualization of microsurgical and open surgical interventions.
Application possibilities are similar to that of the operating microscope. The surgeon can work comfortably via a 3D monitor which allows more freedom of motion and countless positioning options. The most important functions are controlled via the IMAGE1 PILOT, which is mounted on the OR table in the direct vicinity of the surgeon.

  • Ergonomic work – the user is not confined to the eyepiece
  • Improved workflow – the entire OR team has the same view of the site as the surgeon
  • Flexible, diverse application possibilities – from visualization and documentation to education and training
