Washington, DC-Leica Microsystems and TrueVision 3D Surgical have agreed to incorporate key components of TrueVision’s 3D intelligent digital visualization and guidance platform into selected Leica Microsystems surgical products under the Leica brand.

In addition to co-marketing the Leica and 3D by TrueVision products, the two companies will collaborate on advanced projects that will further integrate their respective optical and digital technologies to improve microsurgery outcomes in ophthalmology and neurosurgery.

TrueVision is a real-time, stereoscopic, 3-D, high-definition visualization system for microsurgery. It will be integrated into Leica Microsystems’ surgical microscopes to display the surgical field of view on 3-D flat-panel displays in the operating room. TrueVision combines 3-D visualization with guidance software applications designed to improve accuracy, efficiency, and outcomes. It also enables surgeons to record surgery in 3-D and to stream live video of the surgical field.
