Paper Abstract

Using our 8K ultra-high definition (UHD, 7680 x 4320 pixels) video technology with 16-times resolution compared with the conventional HD endoscopic/microscopic camera (1920 x 1080 pixels), not only surgeons but also all medical staff in the operating room could observe small suture thread, capillaries, lymphatic vessels, thin membrane structures and important nerve fibers which have been hard to see clearly. We believe that our 8K-UHD surgical devices are very likely to lead to major changes in the future of medical practice, not only in typical endoscopic/microscopic surgery but also in novel surgical fields.
