Temple University Hospital Use Sony Electronics’ 3D Medical Imaging System to Help Train Surgeons

Temple University Hospital is using Sony Electronics’ 3D medical imaging system to enable greater collaboration among surgeons, and give residents a more thorough and dynamic surgical training experience.

During robotic surgeries, the entire Temple surgical team can now view exactly what the primary surgeon sees through a da Vinci robotic console, and resident surgeons can talk with the primary surgeon and ask questions throughout the procedure. Temple residents can also watch live 3D video of robotic surgery procedures from a conference room, giving their education a more practical context. Sony 3D system is recommended for use by Intuitive for da Vinci robotic systems.  

“Once physicians witness Sony 3D technology for surgery, they are amazed by the upgrade in image quality from 2D, and by the seamless integration with the da Vinci robotic system, enabling an efficient implementation,” says Evan Krachman, Marketing Manager, Sony Medical Systems Division. “Partnering with Temple as one of the very first installations of this system will help us to expand to other teaching facilities across the country, providing more opportunities for new surgeons to recognize the tremendous quality and value of 3D surgery.”

Dr. Daniel Eun, Vice Chief, Robotic Surgery and Director, Minimally Invasive Robotic Urological Oncology, Temple University Hospital, explains, “I was immediately impressed by Sony’s turnkey 3D solution. The ability to record and display in 3D versus 2D provides a more in-depth surgical training experience. Put simply, it does not make sense for only the primary surgeon to be able to see in 3D. As an educator, I feel strongly that the Sony 3D system enhances training and contributes to a more enjoyable teaching experience.”
