Advanced technology continues to enable the medical industry to go further than ever before imagined. Today, fiber optics serve as an important element to the technological advancement of the medical industry. Whether the image comes from HD endoscopy, radiological, cat-scan, MRI or a simple camera device, and whether the distance is 10 or 10,000 meters, fiber optics is the best means for either analog or digital video transport to assure that image quality remains intact.
Fiber optic signals are not compromised by surrounding radiation, electromagnetic fields/disturbances, noise or general interference. Fiber optics does not produce EMI that would interfere with sensitive medical equipment and communication/data transfer is completely secure. With the advent of HD video being used more and more in the operating room through endoscopy and robotic surgical methods, fiber is the best choice for image accuracy with high reliability.
