Surgical microscopes now offer 3D capabilities, but to see the images one had to use a separate cart with a 3D screen and related equipment on it. Now Leica Microsystems is releasing a couple new microscopes with with TrueVision (Santa Barbara, CA) 3D technology built right in.
The new Leica M720 OH5 and Leica M525 OH4 models stream both 2D and 3D video to other displays, features a small footprint and an ergonomic design, and, of course, legendary Leica optics.
From TrueVision 3D Surgical and Leica:
Leica Microsystems will be presenting two 3D microscope systems, the Leica M720 OH5 and Leica M525 OH4 with TrueVision® smart 3D inside, at the Congress of Neurological Surgeons (CNS) Annual Meeting in San Fancisco, October 19-23, 2013.
