Surgical microscope camera is a type of medical device. Surgical microscope cameras are used to obtain high-resolution live images. These cameras simplify the process of imaging from capture to processing. A basic surgical microscope is an optical instrument– electric, mechanical, or both– consisting of a combination of lenses. It provides the surgeon with a high-quality, stereoscopic, magnified image of small structures within the surgical area. There are several advantages of surgical microscope cameras such as increased specificity and sensitivity, natural visualization, and removal of auto fluorescence. A surgical microscope camera offers spectral and temporal multiplexing; lacks moving parts; and provides modular add-on illumination and camera technology. Important developments in molecular imaging have resulted in fluorescence contrast agents that can highlight the pathology, function, and anatomy of a tissue to help doctors in interventional imaging. A surgical microscope camera provides optical excellence for both the assistant and the surgeon. Safety in its design provides protection against exposure to harmful thermal radiation and UV rays.
Rising geriatric population and increasing incidence of chronic disorders among the people increase the demand for surgical microscope cameras. Increasing inclination toward minimally invasive surgeries boosts the demand for surgical microscope cameras.
