China Market Report for Image Capture and Recording Devices 2016 – MedCore


The popularity of minimally invasive surgery (MIS) is continually growing as the utilization of MIS has
resulted in reduced patient stays and costs, which have been accompanied by improvements in operating
room efficiency. To view the operating field during an MIS procedure, a surgeon uses a surgical camera in
combination with an endoscope, which is inserted into the patient. Still images and videos from these
endoscopic cameras and from overhead cameras are then captured by an image capture and recording
device. This allows images and videos from an operation to be reviewed at a later date. As a result, most
image capture devices are bought as a platform coupled with a surgical camera and a surgical light source.

systems can be recorded at the same time), DICOM and PACS compatibility and secure wireless system
connectivity within hospitals. One feature that is becoming more prominent with these systems is their
ability to share pictures to secure applications on tablets so physicians are able to view them at any point
without relying on hard physical copies. The physician also has the ability to edit and manipulate the
