New update to NUCLeUS allows medical practitioners to manage, share and store 4K, HD, SD and 3D* video content across hospital networks and improve workflows
BASINGSTOKE, UK – 5th November 2020: Sony has announced an update to its vendor-neutral medical imaging platform NUCLeUS. This version built in direct response to the pandemic, introduces remote patient observation with new recording functionalities for use in the operating room (OR), Intensive Care Units (ICU), endoscopy suites, interventional rooms or anywhere else in the hospital.
Developed in consultation with leading surgeons and with vendor neutrality in mind, NUCLeUS guides clinical staff through the planning, recording and sharing of any type of video, still images and other patient-related data. Seamlessly linking devices, applications, video and most importantly, people, NUCLeUS focuses on hospital staff requirements and use cases, adding value to imaging workflows.
As of today, NUCLeUS has been enhanced with new functionalities and features, including improved bi-directional telestration allowing multiple remote users to simultaneously annotate, draw or highlight areas of interest in a live stream video. This can be shared by viewers in all locations to discuss as a group in real time, ideally suited to socially distanced set-ups. In addition, new recording functionalities have also been added as a core use for Ear, Nose and Throat, Urology, Obstetrics and Ophthalmic as well as Outpatient/Ambulatory Surgical Centers (ASC) and private practice uses, including plastic surgery, colorectal and more.

The remote patient observation is a good example of this as it was brought in to help hospitals manage day-to-day requirements through the Covid-19 pandemic,” explained Ludger Philippsen, head of Healthcare at Sony Professional Solutions Europe. “In the wake of the global pandemic we have helped hospitals and healthcare providers reinvent their workflows, providing medical staff with the tools they need to continue delivering excellent patient care.”
