Sometimes we have use cases or users who we are particularly proud and happy to have and support. It could be a use case or user we find very creative, smart or forward thinking. It could also be feedback we’ve been really delighted to receive. Below are a few examples of such “stories” we would like to share. Most of the material is from the Scandinavian region, hence Scandinavian language
The history of surgical film making
We had the opportunity to sit down and talk to Lars-Göran Larsson, senior specialist consultant and surgeon at Kirurgkliniken in Mora (Sweden) about the history of medical image documentation and how medical images early on was used to leverage and educate surgical practice.
Lars-Göran is an avid medical documenter and is one of the main contributors to Videoarkivet USÖ. He has vast experience of medical video documentation and has worked with many different technical solutions in his mission. Today he prefers to work with the VidiView Enterprise Imaging solution deployed in the surgical clinic in Mora.
The recordings are done to enable review and develop the minimal invasive surgery methodology with the goal of increasing patient safety and reducing the number of patient injuries. The concept Lars-Göran develops is referred to as a Black box in the operating room (from the well-known method used in flight disaster recovery work).
With a simple push of a button, Lars-Göran and his colleagues can record and watch the surgery to analyze execution and methodology, train new surgeons and, from time to time, show the patient what it looked like during the surgery. Something that often is much appreciated!
