Strapping an indoor dome IP camera to a IV stand and calling it a medical device for radiologists only works if you’re Sony.
It’s also not just any old IP camera or portable stand. Sony is using its SNC-RH124 dual streaming, HD, 360 degree rapid dome IP camera that incorporates state-of-the-art image-enhancement technologies in a compact body including 10x zoom that allow users to capture clear and bright images in challenging environments.
MD2GO Rolling Medical Stand
Coupled with the SNC-RH124 is Sony’s MD2GO rolling stand specifically designed for medical applications that forms a remote HD IP camera system.
The Sony MD2GO system has just been introduced to the radiology field at the Annual Meeting of the Association for Medical Imaging Management (AHRA) this week:
“The system is designed to enable HD Video communication between remote parties including multiple radiologists, radiologists and referring physicians, or even with radiologists and their patients. By simply using a PC and Microsoft Internet Explorer®, the radiologist can view the other party in HD video and have a two-way audio conversation from virtually anywhere at any time.”
New World of Applications
It’s intertesting to note that we’ve billed this Sony IP camera as capable of opening up a “whole new world of video security applications” for it’s great picture quality, wide monitoring area, and responsive pan and tilt functions. Now, it’s been opened up to the medical world.
So if it feels like you’re being spied on the next time you have a procedure done, maybe you are, and that’s fine by me. Sony claims the MD2GO has already been successful in surgery applications. It’s great to see IP cameras aiding the advancement of medical science with effective involvement of remote expert physicians, helping to teach next generation med students, or post-procedure patient monitoring.
