Modern CT and MRI scanners can provide a moving image of the heart, but they don’t show the complicated patterns of blood flow in and around the organ. Seeing the dynamic nature of patients’ hemodynamics may help surgeons prepare for complicated operations. At Stanford researchers are developing a pre-surgical tool that can ta (Read more...)
Dry eye syndrome may soon be treated with a new implant developed by a team led by researchers at Stanford University. The team identified the afferent neural pathway as being an excellent target for stimulation in order to activate tear production. They built a device that has platinum foil electrodes implanted under the inferior lacrimal [&hellip (Read more...)

Leica Microsystems has upgraded its Leica M320 F12 ENT surgical microscope with a new multifocal objective lens and a 1080p HD video camera.
The new lens allows surgeons performing ear, nose, and throat procedures to change the working distance between 200 mm and 300 mm from the surgical site without having to move the microscope. The cam (Read more...)
Surgical microscopes now offer 3D capabilities, but to see the images one had to use a separate cart with a 3D screen and related equipment on it. Now Leica Microsystems is releasing a couple new microscopes with with TrueVision (Santa Barbara, CA) 3D technology built right in.
The new Leica M720 OH5 and Leica M525 OH4 models stream (Read more...)
