D’AMBRA TECHNOLOGIES RELIES ON JVC GD-463D10U MONITOR FOR 3D DISPLAY DURING SURGICAL PROCEDURES

WAYNE, NJ (March 15, 2010) – JVC Professional Products, division of JVC U.S.A., today announced that D’Ambra Technologies, a medical technology research firm based in Portland, Maine, is using the JVC GD-463D10U 46-inch 3D LCD HD monitor as part of a system that allows observers to watch surgical procedures in real-time 3D at Massachusetts General Hospital (Mass General) in Boston.

Established in 2004, D’Ambra Technologies develops imaging systems that bring the benefits of 3D technologies to the medical community. The company combines software and optical engineering with existing medical hardware to improve imaging for a variety of medical procedures.

“What we do better than anyone else is acquire, record, and display realistic medical 3D content independent of the source,? explained David Kaplan, M.D. at D’Ambra Technologies. “We are working to build a system which can model a real surgical field in real time 3D – and then allow virtual surgery to be performed on that virtual surgical field. Surgeons will be able perform a ‘practice operation’ before they cut anything on a patient.?

JVC’s GD-463D10U 3D monitor uses inexpensive polarized (passive) glasses and produces flicker-free 3D HD images using its integrated Xpol polarizing filter. “This new JVC monitor has overcome my previous reservations,? Kaplan said. “The JVC monitor, coupled with the Black Diamond router, provides a very low latency solution.” This means that the images on the screen have almost no time delay from the actual movements in the surgical field.

Kaplan chose the JVC monitor because it is passive and polarized – he will not incorporate 3D solutions that require active shutter glasses into their systems. “In the surgical setting, we want to reduce the number of failure modes to near zero,? he said.

In collaboration with Black Diamond Video in Alameda, Calif., D’Ambra Technologies installed a 3D monitoring system at Mass General last December. Lawrence Borges, M.D., attending neurosurgeon at Mass General, is currently using the system during procedures when he uses a 3D operating microscope. The JVC monitor allows observers in the operating room to watch the procedure in 3D as it happens. Kaplan said the initial response has been positive from both Borges and the other surgeons who have seen the system in action.
