"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.
