Date:10/27/2009

Technology provides most accurate view inside human body

ATLANTA, Oct. 27 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Doctors at the annual meeting of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine got a glimpse into the future of women's health with the presentation of endoscopic gynecologic surgery performed for the first time using "4K" technology.

Steven F. Palter, MD, an obstetrician, gynecologist, reproductive endocrinologist and fertility specialist performed the world's first 4K super high-definition (HD) laparoscopy at Syosset Hospital, part of the North Shore-LIJ Health System, and presented images from that surgery on October 20 at the 65th annual meeting of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta.

"The images are the sharpest, most detail-rich and color-correct endoscopic images ever created anywhere," Dr. Palter said. "There is not a more accurate view inside the human body."

Produced in conjunction with RED Digital Cinema Camera Company; Sony Electronics, Inc., an ultrahigh definition projector company; and the University of Southern California Cinema Arts School, the diagnostic images were presented in a specially built digital theater with a projector designed to run "ultra-HD" movies in high-end movie theatres. "It's a prime example of how Hollywood film technology can be used to transform medicine by enabling doctors to see more accurately inside the body to study and treat disease," Dr. Palter said.

Ultra-high resolution digital cameras are transforming the art of cinema.
