A newly-launched surgical visualization platform offers various imaging functions, all supported in one system enabling minimally invasive therapies such as laparoscopic colectomy and laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Future software upgrades will advance surgical imaging technology and allow for individual configurations that facilitate seamless support of various surgical applications, leading to a reduction in investment costs.

Olympus Corporation’s (Tokyo, Japan) VISERA ELITE III is its newest surgical visualization platform that addresses the needs of healthcare professionals (HCPs) for endoscopic procedures across multiple medical disciplines. VISERA ELITE III system integrates the 3D and infrared1 imaging functions from VISERA ELITE II, and the 4K imaging function from VISERA 4K UHD system. It also supports fluorescence guided surgery as well as NBI2, a unique observation mode developed by Olympus. By providing surgeons with multiple observation modes, the all-in-one system supports standardization and increases efficiency in the operating room. Users can also set up customized departmental profiles on VISERA ELITE III for different medical disciplines such as general surgery, urology, gynecology, ENT surgery and more. The platform is compatible with existing endoscopes from VISERA ELITE II. The platform allows software upgrades to add new surgical imaging functions as needed. Switching entire surgical visualization systems to access the latest technology is no longer necessary, which not only sets a new standard and provides a high degree of flexibility, but also makes VISERA ELITE III a future-proof investment.

VISERA ELITE III system comes with a focus adjust mode during 4K surgical observation and is equipped with the EDOF (Extended Depth of Field) function that allows precise endoscopic observations through continuous broad focus and seamless magnification. In addition, it provides the C-AF (Continuous Auto Focus) capability that automatically adjusts focus in accordance with the movement of the camera head and endoscope. This facilitates clearer image capture, both up close and at a greater distance, so that HCPs experience less stress during surgery, allowing them to concentrate on the patient and the procedure's outcome. In developing VISERA ELITE III, each technology and image processing function has been optimized specifically for medical applications to create the most advanced, open, and versatile surgical visualization platform Olympus has ever brought to market.

“With VISERA ELITE III, we provide a best-in-class surgical visualization platform designed for multiple medical specialties and configurations, allowing HCPs to fully focus on the patient during surgery,” said Kanichi Matsumoto, Global Head of Surgical Endoscopy at Olympus. “By incorporating the technologies of its predecessors VISERA ELITE II and VISERA 4K UHD into one platform, VISERA ELITE III enhances the quality of endoscopic surgery, contributes to improved efficiency in the operating room, and hereby elevates the standard of care.”
