Software, Video System, Operating Room
Definition : Video system software designed to operate surgical video systems and control/monitor a limited number of their functions. This software is usually intended to work only with one or a few models of surgical video systems, typically supplied by the same manufacturer. The software performs a variety of algorithms to facilitate the analysis of measurements and images obtained during the surgical procedure and also facilitates the sending/receiving of patient data from and to information systems. Surgical video system software is usually not available separate from the video system but may be updated (i.e., through the release of modified versions) during the lifetime of the system. The software is intended to facilitate the observation of the operatory field simultaneously by several surgeons in the operating room, the transmission of images to remote locations (e.g., for educational purposes), and keeping a record of the procedures.
