Bringing a New Level of Image Enhancement to Surgical Procedures KARL STORZ offers state-of-the-art technology solutions for minimally invasive surgical procedures in virtually all specialties. Among our products are innovative OR surgical and video solutions that help give surgeons the most advanced capabilities available and to enhance the overall level of care they can deliver to their patients. KARL STORZ IMAGE 1® SPIES™ visualization enhancement tools, including the SPIES Clara™ and SPIES Chroma™ Modular Visual Enhancement Tools, give surgeons enhanced views of challenging anatomical areas during critical or complex procedures. Combined with new FULL-HD three-chip camera heads, these modular components allow customization to suit individual needs and dramatically increase visibility during endoscopic interventions within complex surgical conditions. The SPIES Clara™ automatically identifies and brightens dark areas of an image on a pixel level — without lag time. This helps ensure that proper illumination is delivered to each segment of the endoscopic image during the procedure. Surgical interventions can be more efficient if clear differentiation of tissue is possible, and SPIES Chroma™ helps achieve this by intensifying the color contrast in the image.
