(New York – May 31, 2018) The Department of Neurosurgery at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai is one of the first hospitals in the country to use the ZEISS KINEVO® 900 microscope, a new surgeon-driven, robotic visualization system that merges the functionality of a surgical microscope with 4K resolution and 3D visualization along with specialized robotic control. Optical, navigation, and simulation information are streamed into the microscope’s eyepiece and projected on large monitors in the operating room, providing a detailed perspective for the operating room staff, including co-surgeons, surgical assistants, and medical residents, who can all view the high-resolution images in real time. 3D glasses provide an enhanced visualization of neuroanatomy.
“An important question for neurosurgeons has always been, where is the best place to view optical information from the microscope–should one look through the eyepieces as we’ve done traditionally, or should that information be gathered by high-resolution video and projected on a monitor,” says Joshua Bederson, MD, Professor and System Chair for the Department
