Laparoscopic Instrument Design Demonstration of Telescope, Camera, Light Source and Light Cables
Event Date: Mon - 4 Aug, 2014
Event Time: 9:00 am - 12:00 am
Location: World Laparoscopy Hospital, Gurgaon
Institute: WLHToday the doctors learnt about the different types of the Rigid Rod lens types of the telescope namely the 0,30,45 degree etc. They learnt how the fiber optic bundles which carry light from the light Source are placed above the lens in the telescope so as to enable the surgeon to appreciate the depth perception by the depth cues. They learnt about the various cameras used in laparoscopy e.g. Single Chip Standard Definition, Single Chip High Definition, Three Chip High Definition camera system . Various settings of these cameras was also discussed. Various types of the Light sources e.g., Halogen, Xenon, LED, and how they differ on the concept of Color Temperature on which the brightness of the light depends was made clear to them. Different Light Cables were shown e.g., Fiber Optics and Liquid Crystal cables.
