PARK RIDGE, N.J., April 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Sony Electronics, a leader in
providing innovative imaging solutions for microsurgery, announces the first
east and west coast installations of its end-to-end 3D imaging solution for
ophthalmic surgery. Robert Cionni, M.D., Cataract Surgeon, Eye Institute of
Utah, Salt Lake City and Richard J. Mackool, M.D., Senior Attending Surgeon,
New York Eye and Ear Infirmary, Director, Mackool Eye Institute and Laser
Center, and Professor of Ophthalmology, New York University MedicalCenter,

video recorder, and 3D display, the LMD-2451MT 24-inch LCD widescreen monitor
with full HD resolution. The solution will be demonstrated at the American
Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery (ASCRS) Symposium April 21 – 23,
2013, in San Francisco.

"Sony's advanced surgical technology is a complete end-to-end 3D solution,
from image capture to recording and display,providing a truer visual
experience andenabling me to take advantage of more realistic depth
perception and spatial orientation for training and education," said Robert
Cionni, M.D., Cataract Surgeon, Eye Institute of Utah, Salt Lake City.

Designed for use in ophthalmic surgery and neurosurgery, this
technology-advanced, medical-grade 3D camera system works with most
microscopes to capture, record, and display 3D video in the O.R.
Additionally, Sony offers four adaptors to fit a wide variety of surgical
microscopes allowing for increased compatibility of the 3D camera. This
enables hospitals and surgical centers to invest in this comprehensive 3D
solution without having to replace their existing microscopes, avoiding extra

surgical review, training and educational purposes. It allows doctors to
review surgeries with patients, broadcast live surgeries in the patient
viewing room and utilize live broadcast for referring-doctor training events.


The full portfolio of Sony's 3D and 2D solutions for ophthalmology
applications will be showcased at ASCRS including the MCC-3000MT camera
mounted on a surgical microscope and the HVO-3000MT recorder designed to
