A trend in healthcare is to outfit traditional operating rooms (ORs) with advanced imaging systems, such as CT, MRI, and mobile C-ARM, to create hybrid ORs that allow doctors, surgeons, and nurses to diagnose and treat patients in one place. Hybrid ORs also transmit and display high quality medical images in real time, sometimes with images from different imaging systems displayed on one screen at the same time, referred to as hybrid visualization. Combining these medical imaging advances and last-mile visualization, hybrid visualization systems are expected to increase the efficiency of doctors, surgeons, and nurses in operating rooms (ORs), saving valuable time. To deliver hybrid visualization systems, medical equipment manufacturers must satisfy many requirements, like providing surgeons with real-time visual guidance and minimizing imaging processing time, which helps to improve OR turnover. Also, image quality must be enhanced without increasing a patient’s exposure to harmful radiation; and low latency image transfer is needed by surgeons performing time-critical procedures. Attend this webinar to learn how ADLINK is helping medical equipment manufacturers tackle critical challenges as they work to improve healthcare services.
