Schlueter: Imaging technology in the OR can be seen as the tools
used to perform minimally-invasive procedures. If these tools are
reliable and compatible, then minimally-invasive surgeries will be an
effective part of a hospital’s workflow. Conversely, if these imaging
technology tools prove difficult to use, then they will be avoided.

They should have the following
• Reusable components with highly effective cleaning
properties to reduce the risk of SSIs, which remain
a significant cost for the U.S. healthcare system
and also negatively impact patient outcomes and
patient recovery times.
• Solutions that reduce procedure costs without
sacrificing surgical performance, which allows the
facility to improve overall profitability and/or reinvest the savings into emerging technologies and
• Adaptable technologies that can produce the
results of multiple devices into one, which typically
translates into a per-procedure cost reduction but
also makes the physician more efficient and reduces the time to complete the procedure.
Control OR manages up to 10 input sources
and maintains signal integrity to output
displays. The intuitive tablet interface routes
video, saves user settings, and more.
Wireless HD video transceivers from FSN
eliminate cabling in walls, ceilings, or across
floors. They perform without crosstalk or
interfering with other sensitive equipment.
FSN Display Monitors ensure smooth, artifact-free medical images and are offered in 19”
through 55” screen sizes. Each display features
rapid signal detection and clinical calibration.
MDVR can record video and still images from
operating devices for later playback or transfer
to portable media. The unit is controlled by
FSN’s tablet and intuitive user interface.
