Smith+Nephew today announces the launch of its LENS 4K Surgical Imaging System; a state-of-the-art visualization platform designed for end-to-end 4K imaging.
The LENS 4K System features a Camera Control Unit with an integrated light source, Camera Head, image management options and Tablet Application in a single solution. The latest native 4K 3CMOS Ultra High Definition technology combined with Smith+Nephew’s proprietary image and light processing is intended to create impressive color reproduction, image clarity, and depth of field.
The LENS 4K System not only delivers on image quality, it has also been designed to minimize the complexity in equipment management and maximize OR workflows to help facilities drive efficiencies and effectiveness.
The LENS 4K System also introduces a newly designed autoclavable camera head that is ergonomically shaped for balance and comfort in a surgeon’s hand. Programmable buttons on the camera head allow surgeons to control common functions and when used with the LENS iPad Application, settings may be controlled outside the surgical field. Setting options include image and video capture, transfer to an electronic medical record (EMR), picture archiving and communication systems (PACS), and report creation for patient communication.
“We are thrilled to introduce LENS 4K to a market that is demanding elite visual precision for surgeons performing arthroscopic procedures,” said Scott Schaffner, Senior Vice President of Smith+Nephew Sports Medicine Marketing. “The LENS 4K image quality is extraordinary and combined with our integration technology to distribute surgical images and content, we are uniquely positioned to address the entire surgical workflow environment.”
Ambulatory and multi-surgery centers will appreciate the flexibility of the LENS 4K platform, including the integrated light source and image management options enabling connectivity to the health system network for sharing reports, images and video with third-party systems such as electronic medical records (EMR), PACS or other clinical systems.
The LENS 4K System builds on more than 35 years of surgical video innovation from Smith+Nephew and seamlessly integrates with existing LENS scopes, displays, cannulas, obturators and trocars.
