The Ohio State University Interactive Demonstration of Laparoscopic Surgery Over the Internet SURA/ViDe April 24, 2002
Participants n Jerome Johnson, Ph.D., Research Scientist Department of Surgery n W. Scott Melvin, M.D., Associate Professor Department of Surgery n E. Christopher Ellison, M.D., Professor Department of Surgery n Robert Dixon, Ph.D., Senior Research Engineer University Technology Services
Project Overview n Application requires high quality, full- motion video with good color rendition. n Use affordable, off-the-shelf technology to permit large-scale deployment. n Allow live bi-directional interaction with surgical team for instructional and possible consultative purposes.
Laparoscopic Surgery n Small incisions are made in the abdomen. n Surgical instruments and a camera are inserted through these small incisions. n Surgeon performs the surgery by watching a TV screen.
Why Choose Laparoscopic Surgery For This Project? n A camera is already used in the surgical procedure. n No need to retrofit operating room with an extensive video system.
Implementation Details n Based on TCP/IP implementation of H.323 videoconferencing. n Uses Polycom Viewstation n 768kbps bandwidth in each direction. n Camera can be angled and zoomed from the remote end.
