Olympus releases new 4K-3D video microscope for accurate surgery

October 9, 2017

Global technology firm Olympus has launched a 4K-3D video microscope Orbeye to allow more accurate surgery by delivering high-resolution 3D images of structures such as tissue and blood vessels.

Orbeye has been developed by Sony Olympus Medical Solutions, which was formed in 2013 as a joint venture between Olympus and Sony Imaging Products and Solutions.

The ability of the new microscope to display the progress of surgical procedures on a 55in monitor is intended to eliminate the need for extensive viewing through microscope eyepieces, minimising surgeon fatigue.
