NUCLeUS Smart Application: Rotation Correction

The orientation of video images from a handheld surgical endoscopic camera shifts with movements of the hand position. This can make it harder for clinical staff in the OR to accurately interpret on-screen images when the horizon keeps changing. The Rotation Correction NUCLeUS Smart Application ensures video displayed on a connected monitor remains correctly oriented, irrespective of the endoscope’s rotational movements and without the need for manual intervention of a member of staff.

Reset Your Horizon

The horizon can be reset at any time via the NUCLeUS user interface, or from a button on the camera head. The rotation correction enhances endoscopic video signals up to 4K resolution in real time, with no perceptible delay during a procedure.

NUCLeUS Smart Application: Telestration

There are frequent situations in the operating room where a surgeon seeks the opinions of another consultant. Traditionally, this has meant inviting colleagues into the OR to view a procedure on-site, which is a time-consuming and therefore costly way of using valuable resources. Not anymore. The Telestration feature allows surgeons to seek real-time consultation from colleagues located outside of the OR, in order to facilitate complex, evidence-based decisions when needed.

Visual annotations

The NUCLeUS Smart Application for Telestration allows the remote addition of visual annotations to camera signals. A colleague viewing real-time video from the OR on a networked computer can add colored freehand lines, preset shapes and text, which are superimposed over the live video stream.

Play Back Annotations When Reviewing Image Content

Telestration annotations can be viewed back in the OR with no perceptible delay, assisting the surgeon with more accurate decision making. The annotated images can also be broadcast to students in a lecture theater as a valuable teaching tool.

Always Looking to the Future

Since NUCLeUS is built around open APIs, third-party developers can create new NUCLeUS Smart Applications of their own to join this powerful medical imaging platform.

Making the move to NUCLeUS

NUCLeUS is a vendor-neutral platform. This allows all applications to be used in conjunction with modalities from a wide range of manufacturers. Clinicians can thus enjoy the benefits of using NUCLeUS Smart Applications without being tied to specific modalities.
