HDR helps see a wider range of brightness levels, giving a better view of complex ophthalmological and endoscopic procedures.
Visualisation of ophthalmic surgical procedures – including cataract and posterior segment surgery – often feature dark viewing environments that SDR cameras and displays struggle to capture accurately. An HDR imaging workflow is critical in such instances as it provides the surgeon with essential visual details needed for fine precision. Additionally, highly sensitive HDR cameras like Sony’s microsurgical camera MCC-1000MD can capture high-contrast ophthalmic surgical images, which can be displayed more clearly on a compatible HDR medical display.
HDR can reveal more detail in dark body cavities and bright areas, giving a more informative, evenly exposed view of minimally invasive procedures. When using an HDR enabled imaging workflow, all OR staff can view the same enhanced image on a display as the primary surgeon. This can improve efficiency and decision making during endoscopic surgery.
HDR plays a valuable role in supporting clinical teaching and training, allowing colleagues and students to view live or recorded procedures with the same clarity, contrast and colour experienced by surgical teams in the Operating Room. HDR video footage can support improved knowledge sharing at conferences: it’s also a powerful tool for helping hospitals review their own surgical techniques and operational procedures.
