Because of the limitations with live video streaming, neurosurgery in high magnification and high definition with a live surgery has never been done before. But with omNovia, my students and colleagues can watch the operation as if they were next to me.
Houston, TX (Vocus) November 2, 2010
Aaron Cohen-Gadol, MD, renowned neurosurgeon with Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis, continues to webcast his surgeries live to train other doctors remotely with omNovia Technologies' HD webcasting solution. During the recent meeting of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons at the Mascone Center in San Francisco, the nation’s top 200 neurosurgeons tuned in to watch the live surgery in Indianapolis and even talk live with Dr. Cohen-Gadol while watching the live video stream in full HD (1080p).
"Because of the limitations with live video streaming and latency, neurosurgery in high magnification and high definition with a live surgery has never been done before," says Dr. Cohen-Gadol. “But with omNovia, my students and colleagues can watch the operation as if they were next to me. We can create an interactive environment where we see the same images, view and discuss X-rays together and collaborate for an improved patient outcome. For busy physicians, this can be done with just a laptop and Internet connection, so they save time and money on travel expenses and software."
"We are very proud omNovia enables live webcast of surgery in HD video and improves the quality of surgical education,” says Shawn Shadfar, CEO of omNovia Technologies. Also, the company is currently working on adding 3D video streaming capability to its webcasting portal.
Now Dr. Cohen-Gadol has proven the benefits of webcasting live surgeries for medical training, omNovia Technologies expects more doctors to utilize the technology and take advantage of the savings and learning opportunities.
