The Use of High-Definition Video Technology in the Surgical Setting

Abstract

In 1995, a group of German researchers reviewed the results of 54 invasive endoscopic procedures performed with imaging systems using “improved resolution” technology and predicted that high-definition (HD) technology “may well become an essential part” of the surgeon’s armamentarium. The authors noted that “both endoscopically inexperienced and experienced surgeons [could] benefit from the use of a[n imaging] system with improved resolution.”1 Now, in 2007, their prediction has become reality. Today, several large hospital centers incorporate HD technology into their surgical suites and medical-school classrooms, both for use as an educational tool and clinical/diagnostic aid.
