ARRIScope - A new era in surgical microscopy [SCIEN]

ARRIScope - A new era in surgical microscopy
Wednesday, March 22, 2017 - 4:30pm
Packard 101
Dr. Hans Kiening (Arnold & Richter Cine Technik)
Abstract / Description: 

The continuous increase in performance and the versatility of ARRI´s digital motion picture camera systems led to our development of the first fully digital stereoscopic operating microscope, the ARRISCOPE. For the last 18 months' multiple units have been used in clinical trials at renowned clinics in the field of Otology in Germany.
During our presentation we will cover the obstacles, initial applications and future potentials of 3D camera based surgical microscopes and give an insight into the technical preconditions and advantages of the digital imaging chain. In conclusion of the presentation, examples of different surgical procedures recorded with the ARRISCOPE and near future augmented and virtual reality 3D applications will be demonstrated.

Dr. Hans Kiening is general manager and founder of the medical business unit at Arnold & Richter (ARRI) based in Munich, Germany. He has more than 20 years of experience with image science and sensor technologies. He began his career at ARRI Research & Development in 1996, where he developed an automated image analysis and calibration system for the ARRILASER (a solidstate laser filmrecorder). In 2012, he conceptualized and realized the development of a purely digital surgical microscope based on the Alexa camera system - the ARRISCOPE. He holds a lectureship at the University of Applied Science in Munich and is the author of many SMPTE papers (journal award 2006) and medical/media image science related patents. He holds a PhD in image science from the University of Cottbus, Germany.
