Olympus unveiled VISERA 4K UHD System, its state-of-the art Big Screen surgical system, at the Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons (SAGES) 2016 Annual meeting in Boston.

The VISERA 4K UHD System delivers four times the resolution of HD with better light and wider color spectrum, promising to help surgeons operate with increased precision and confidence. The only fully integrated 4K imaging chain available for health care use, VISERA 4K UHD allows operating room (OR) personnel to get closer to the operating field as they view cases live on a 55-inch operative display that magnifies anatomical features to deliver more visual information to the entire surgical team.

While bringing more efficiency to the hospital, it has also been shown that minimally invasive surgery can provide significant improvements in morbidity and mortality over open surgery, with benefits to patients including less post-operative pain and faster recuperation.

VISERA 4K UHD, the first of many products from the Sony Olympus Medical Solutions joint-venture, is now transforming health care by enhancing minimally invasive surgery in a range of surgical specialties including general surgery, gastroenterology, gynecology, thoracic and urology for an estimated 20 million procedures annually. Olympus’ first customers began using VISERA 4K UHD during the first week of March 2016.
