Olympus announced today that it launched its Visera Elite III surgical visualization platform for endoscopic surgery.
Tokyo-based Olympus designed the Visera Elite III system to offer all imaging capabilities in one platform. Its uses include minimally invasive procedures such as laparoscopic colectomy and laparoscopic cholecystectomy.
Visera Elite III combines 3D and infrared imaging capabilities from the previous generation with the 4K imaging capabilities of the Visera 4K UHD system. It also supports fluorescence-guided surgery, according to a news release. Olympus said it supports standardization and increases efficiency in the operating room with multiple viewing modes. It also offers customized department profiles for different surgical departments.
The platform can be upgraded with software as needed, as well. Olympus equipped Visera Elite III with a focus adjustment mode for 4K surgical observation. It also has an enhanced depth of field function for precise endoscopic observation.
Olympus combined its medical device expertise with Sony’s digital imaging technology to create Visera Elite III. The companies developed it through the Sony Olympus Medical Solutions joint venture.
“The Visera Elite III offers a best-in-class surgical visualization platform designed for multiple disciplines and configurations, allowing healthcare professionals to fully focus on their patients during surgery,” said Kanichi Matsumoto, global head of surgical endoscopy at Olympus. “By incorporating the technologies of our predecessor products Visera Elite II and Visera 4K UHD into a single platform, we will improve the quality of endoscopic surgery, contribute to greater efficiency in the operating room, and raise the standard of medical care.”
