Olympus announced today that Big Screen surgery with 4K UHD endoscopy is now available for ear, nose and throat (ENT) surgeons through the Olympus VISERA 4K UHD System.

VISERA 4K UHD, the first of many products from the Sony Olympus Medical Solutions (SOMED) joint-venture, is a state-of-the-art Big Screen surgical system that Olympus unveiled earlier this year to a broad surgical base. The VISERA 4K UHD System delivers four times the resolution of HD with better light and a wider color spectrum, promising to help surgeons operate with increased precision and confidence.

The only fully integrated 4K imaging chain available for healthcare use, VISERA 4K UHD allows operating room personnel to get closer to the operating field as they view cases live on a 55-inch operative display that magnifies anatomical features to deliver more visual information to the entire surgical team. The VISERA 4K UHD System was created to address unmet needs in surgical imaging by improving the visual elements essential for Sinus surgery – light, color and resolution – via an optimized 4K imaging chain that works seamlessly together to improve visibility.

Among the procedures identified as potentially benefiting from 4K UHD are Skull Base procedures (such as those for the removal of cysts or benign or malignant tumors) and Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery (FESS), a surgical treatment of sinusitis and nasal polyps, including bacterial, fungal recurrent, acute and chronic sinus problems. According to Truven Health Analytics Inc., there were more than 4,900,000 sinus procedures performed in the United States per year.[i] Specific to FESS, it is estimated that approximately 552,000 patients undergo the procedures annually in the United States.[ii]

“As each specialty confirms the improved experience that Big Screen surgery delivers, we get closer to confirming our predictions that this surgical modality could impact as many as 20 million procedures per year,” said Todd Usen, President, Olympus Medical Systems Group at Olympus Corporation of the Americas. “In the future months, we believe an increasing number of physicians will be excited to see the benefits such technology advancement can bring toward improving quality of care, containing costs and enhancing patient satisfaction.”

Big Screen Surgery with 4K HD for ENT will be demonstrated at the Olympus booth, #1805 at the American Academy of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery (AAO-HNSF) Annual Meeting & OTO EXPO℠ in San Diego, Sept. 18-20. The system will also be available for demonstration at the American Rhinology Society conference Sept. 16-17, also in San Diego.
