The World of Waves and Particles – Cameras & Photonics from WOM

Minimally invasive procedures have become the gold standard worldwide for many indications. Trocars are inserted into the body through small, up to one centimeter long incisions. The surgical teams insert an endoscope and special surgical instruments into the body through these trocars to diagnose and treat conditions.

Video Lenses for all Needs

  • There are numerous surgical procedures that can be carried out in the human body
  • Accordingly, WOM also develops the associated lenses. In addition to fixed focal lengths, we have special zooms for magnification of the surgical field
  • Universal connectors on the Camera make it possible to connect the best-suited lens system, including endoscopes, for all surgical procedures

Detection Probe Application

Gamma Detection Probe
  • The Gamma Finder ® complement our optical range for Minimally Invasive Medicine
  • The Gamma Detection Probe helps in cancer therapy
  • Doctors can reliably detect sentinel lymph nodes by using a slightly radioactive contrast agent
  • This provides information about a possible metastasis
  • Previously, many incisions may have been required in the underarm area of a breast cancer patient to locate and remove all the nodes and today these procedures are reduced to a minimum
