Paper Abstract

A 3D high-definition television (HDTV) system suitable for attachment to a stereoscopic operating microscope allowing 3D medical documentation using a single HDTV camera and monitor is described. The system provides 3D HDTV microneurosurgical recorded images suitable for viewing on a screen or monitor, or for printing. Visual documentation using a television and video system is very important in modern medical practice, especially for the eduction of medical students, the training of residents, and the display of records in medical conferences. For the documentation of microsurgery and endoscopic surgery, the video system is essential. The printed images taken from the recording by the HDTV system of the illustrative case clearly demonstrate the high quality and definition achieved, which are comparable to that of the 35 mm movie film. As the system only requires a single camera and recorder, the cost performance and size make it very suitable for microsurgical and endoscopic documentation.
