Abstract
Previous attempts at popularizing stereoscopic devices for surgical use have been only minimally successful. In this paper, we point out what we perceive as past errors and misdirected designs. Although the perfect viewing medium has yet to be identified, certain basic principles and needs are summarized in order to enhance and promote acceptance of stereoscopic methods for surgical procedures, especially in the minimally invasive area. In addition, we present a newly developed autostereoscopic screen and accompanying 2D and 3D converter for medical/surgical use. A summary of the clinical testing performed and the degree of acceptance is also presented. Particular design requirements are unique to the surgical environment and these parameters are presented. The operator acceptance of the device and the value added requirements for stereoscopic endoscopic viewing are discussed.
