Women's Surgery Recorded for the First Time on '4K' Digital Cinema is Presented at the AAGL Congress
Date:10/30/2008

Hollywood's latest ultra-high definition has potential to revolutionize endoscopic surgery

LAS VEGAS, Oct. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, there was a glimpse into the future of women's healthcare with the presentation of gynecologic surgery that was recorded for the first time using "4K" technology, at the 37th Global Congress of Minimally Invasive Gynecology hosted by the AAGL. AAGL is the international professional society for specialists in minimally invasive gynecological techniques.

Ultra-high resolution digital cameras are transforming the art of cinema. Leading Hollywood directors such as Peter Jackson and Stephen Soderbergh have just started filming the next generation of cinema blockbusters using cameras with "4K" resolution, four times the resolution of High Definition (HD) with 4096 lines of resolution to give audiences unprecedented realism.

"Through the use of digital technology, Hollywood is moving from observation to immersion - you're not just watching something, you are there," said Steven F. Palter, MD of Gold Coast IVF (Syosset, NY) and director of docinthemachine.com, who presented the general session, Film and Medicine: Entertainment and Technology from Yesterday to the Future. "In this session we showed how tomorrow's film technology can apply to endoscopy and laparoscopic surgery, which is all performed using video techniques."

Dr. Palter joined forces with the Red Digital Cinema Camera Company that manufactures the 4K system and Sony, the leading ultra-high definition projector company, to film and project a surgery and microscopic images in 4K, which represents its first uses in medicine and biology.

During the digital cinema presentation, the 1600+ surgeons in attendance were able to visualize the surgery as if they were standing in the operating room. By combining unprecedented resolution and magnification, the surgical images were beyond what a surgeon would typically see while watching a video monitor
