Uppsala, Sweden, February 25, 2015: The ENT department of Uppsala University Hospital has tested an Ikegami medical grade camera, recorder and monitor for ear operations. Uppsala University Hospital is one of Sweden's largest university hospitals in Sweden. Its ENT department looks after the diagnosis and treatment of children and adults with diseases of the ear, nose and throat, offering both basic and highly specialised care.

 In such operations, a mixture of blood, water and bone fragments tend to create a lot of reflections in the picture. Very high picture quality was therefore required. The ENT department needed to record each operations in high quality video image for advanced research activities.  

Ikegami's MKC high-end medical grade camera was able to deliver clear images even with different combinations of objects, colours and reflections. This was achieved by setting each parameter optimally. Ikegami's MLW-2623C high quality medical grade monitor makes it possible to reproduce the image in full 1920 x 1080 high-definition. The MDR-600HD records in full HD resolution during each operation.  



"The Ikegami MKC high-end medical grade camera is a perfect camera for this type of applications," comments Otosurgery / ENT department M.D. Ph.D, Edfeldt. "We are very pleased with the colour reproduction, sharpness and especially the ability to reduce reflections in critical phases. Ikegami's MLW-2623C monitor has a high level of brightness, high resolution and a wide viewing angle. It also provides a high level of continuity in image quality. The Ikegami MDR-600HD allows us to record images and photos in crystal clear high-definition via an intuitive front control panel. It should prove very useful for research work after each operation,”


MKC high-end medical camera

Ikegami’s MKC high-end medical grade camera employs a 3-CMOS sensor to achieve full high-definition 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution images. Sensitivity is approximately 40% higher than on the standard model and it can perform better even at the low illumination surgery. Optimised signal processing circuitry delivers a high signal-to-noise ratio of 54 dB.


Ikegami's MLW-2623C medical grade monitor employs a full high-definition 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution panel for displaying extremely fine images. Images can be viewed comfortably from almost any angle. The LCD panel has a high response speed to ensure minimal after-imaging. 10-bit signal signal processing ensures smooth image gradation. A high quality internal processor converts interlaced source signals into natural-looking progressive-scan images free of jagged line artifacts.


Ikegami’s MDR-600HD medical grade recorder can record high quality SD/HD video and still images (640 x 480 to 1920 x 1080). Simultaneous recording on internal HDD and external USB device ensure data reliability. Three-way recording is available. Still images can be saved during video recording. Video or still images can be reproduced during the video recording process.
