VERNON HILLS, Ill., May 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Surgeons using endoscopy to stalk pathology know that sharper views enhance treatments and improve patients' outcomes. But until now, high-definition endocams have been too expensive for many physicians in private offices or ambulatory surgery centers.
Richard Wolf Medical Instruments Corp. changes that with the groundbreaking 5514 Endocam Performance HD, launching at the American Urological Association (AUA) annual meeting May 19-23, 2012 in Atlanta.
Its applications aren't limited to urology. The 5514 Endocam Performance HD allows OB-Gyn's, ENTs, oncologists, spine surgeons and other specialists to guide their office procedures with the kind of sophisticated imagery previously available only in hospitals. German ingenuity provides various couplers that quickly engage and release a variety of instrumentation, adapting the 5514 for use across many medical scenarios.
Unprecedented for endocams in its price range, the 5514 records full HD video (720p and 1080i), or stills at the touch of a button on the camera head. Imagery can be exported directly to a USB stick plugged into the front of the control panel. This integrated recording function streamlines image retrieval for the doctor, simplifying electronic record-keeping.
"With this camera, we are really empowering the physician -- and the patient -- at every level," said Monica Sanders, Corporate Director of Marketing, for Richard Wolf. "It's an everyday camera that makes HD video broadly accessible."
