“Under the banner of ‘Live Your Vision’, we will showcase how our end-to-end surgical imaging solutions and technologies, including our new more powerful and flexible NUCLeUS IP imaging platform, are revolutionising image management and efficiency within hospitals. We will also demonstrate how innovative and reliable 4K3D and 4K imaging workflows can place clinical teams closer to reality and can allow surgeons to work more confidently and safely.”
Smart IP Imaging Platform: NUCLeUS
For the first time, Sony will demonstrate its recently announced more user-friendly workflow version of its open, vendor neutral and future proof IP imaging platform, NUCLeUS. Aimed at improving imaging workflow to help deliver better outcomes for patients, the new version brings 4K support, compatibility with copper or fibre infrastructure as well as the ability to manage and support uncompressed and compressed image quality.
As a smart, flexible, easy and scalable IP imaging platform with unlimited 4K, NUCLeUS is revolutionising image management by offering a new level of efficiency and uncompromised image quality to hospitals. By enabling video content to be available anywhere and everywhere, the future-proofed software can be introduced seamlessly into any existing IP infrastructure to maximise cost efficiency through networked management.
Customers across Europe have already invested in NUCLeUS including Regional Hospital, Franciscus Gasthuis & Vlietland in Netherlands, leading Swedish teaching hospital, Karolinska University Hospital and leading teaching hospital, University Hospital Leuven in Belgium.
Enhancing surgical imaging workflows
At MEDICA 2019, Sony will demonstrate the three imaging workflows which are available in today’s ORs – from image capture and visualisation to recording and documentation.
For hospitals looking for entry-level to high-end visualisation, recording and printing in the OR, Sony will display its HD surgical imaging solutions which allow clinical staff to view with confidence and focus on their tasks. Used for advanced visualisation for any type of endoscopic/laparoscopic or microsurgical procedure, Sony will show a range of solutions which allow surgeons and clinical staff to capture, view, document and share Full HD images in high quality.
With HDR technology, hospitals are offered an easy and cost-effective way to enhance their surgical workflow through a new level of immersion and image clarity.
Document the details with documentation solutions
Clinicians worldwide depend on reliable, high-performance medical recorders and printers which offer seamless integration with imaging systems to improve workflow in ultrasound and radiology. At MEDICA, Sony is presenting its wide portfolio of medical printers and recorders. Aiming to simplify and expand the use of printers in ultrasound as well as inside the OR, Sony will also demonstrate its space-saving, fast and efficient wireless printing solutions as well as DC-powered printers facilitating easier modality printer integration.
Alongside other hybrid OR and HD surgical solutions, the Sony HVO-4000MT 4K3D medical-grade video recorder will be on the stand with its improved firmware adding DICOM modality worklist support as well as an HD input.
Sony will be exhibiting on Stand H57 (Hall 10) at MEDICA 2019 from 18th – 21st November. Follow Sony on LinkedIn for the latest news from the show and see here for more information: https://pro.sony/en_GB/event-medica
