NUCLeUS

The smart digital operating room platform

Overview

Manage, store, and share video-rich content across hospital networks
NUCLeUS™ is the open, scalable, and vendor-neutral video-over-IP platform that transforms surgical workflow efficiency in today's networked hospital environment. NUCLeUS™ connects devices, applications, and data transparently for real-time informed decisions by every hospital stakeholder.

Developed in consultation with leading surgeons, NUCLeUS™ guides clinical staff through the planning, recording, and sharing of video, images, and other patient-related data in the operating room, across the hospital campus, and beyond.

Controlled by the intuitive GUI, live images can be displayed on any screen in the operating room or elsewhere on the hospital campus.

Multiple video feeds from endoscopes, surgical microscopes, room cameras, and other sources can be recorded simultaneously on an eNSOR™ appliance (a network-based platform), in any combination of formats and resolutions.

A truly end-to-end IP workflow solution, NUCLeUS™ also lets surgeons in the operating room share live video with other doctors and medical students.

Captured content can also be associated with other patient records and stored centrally for secure access from anywhere over hospital-wide IP networks.

Features

Seamless, intuitive image workflow
NUCLeUS™ features an intuitive touch interface that simplifies workflows and reduces the risk of "information overload" for clinical staff in today's busy operating rooms. Instantly route any image source to any destination, with no need to re-connect equipment. Record multiple video sources in the operating room simultaneously on an eNSOR appliance (a network-based application), in any combination of formats and resolutions.
Scalable, open, and vendor neutral
NUCLeUS™ is device-, format-, and resolution-agnostic, handling HD and 4K sources from a wide range of modality manufacturers. Video and audio are distributed in real-time over secure, standard IP connections for centralized storage and access rights across the hospital network.
Compatible with any image source
NUCLeUS™ gives surgeons control over a huge range of image sources in the operating room, ranging from live video signals from endoscopes, ultrasound streams, and PACS workstation input to fluoroscopes, etc.
Flexible display options
NUCLeUS™ offers a wide range of display modes, including switching to multiple monitors in full screen, picture-in-picture or multi-split. This flexibility supports smoother workflows to suit the needs of surgeons, doctors, and medical staff through all phases of a surgical intervention, from planning and intervention, to post-operative review.
Advanced image enhancement apps
A growing range of apps adds powerful real-time image processing features to assist surgeons and clinical staff. A vascularization filter provides clearer visibility of blood vessels. Rotation correction compensates for movements of an endoscope camera, ensuring that images are always seen the "right way up."
For teaching, training, and knowledge sharing
NUCLeUS™ Broadcast (option) supports live video streaming with two-way audio communications—so there is no need to use a mobile phone to communicate with colleagues. With simple touch-panel control, it's ideal for "narrowcasting" surgical procedures in the operating room to students or consultants—or even to conference delegates at a remote location. Powerful functionalities, like Telestration (optional), can help an advising surgeon outside the OR communicate easily with the team inside.
Streamlined information management
NUCLeUS™ simplifies the management of all relevant patient data from interventions in the operating room. Multiple image sources from live surgery can be integrated seamlessly with PACS, EMR, and HIS/RIS to create a comprehensive, easily accessible patient record that can be browsed.
Enabling smoother hospital workflow
NUCLeUS™ communicates with the entire hospital using the DICOM and HL7 standards, providing input to PACS and multimedia archives and generating a wide spectrum of surgical information that can be combined with the Electronic Patient Record. NUCLeUS™ scales smoothly, integrating with hospital information systems, operating room planning systems, and DICOM worklists for a seamless workflow.
Easy integration, seamless upgrades, and remote support
NUCLeUS™ offers hospital IT departments the benefits of easy integration, alongside low ownership and support costs. The system's all-IP architecture provides a seamless upgrade path from HD to 4K, plus flexibility and scalability. It also enables remote management capabilities, including preventive maintenance.
Open for developers
Open APIs simplify rapid integration with modality manufacturers' operating-room controllers and other hospital systems. This also offers an attractive environment for developers to create their own modality-specific applications that can be hosted on the NUCLeUS™ platform.
