Integrating a Tracking Camera in the OR Using the IEEE 11073-SDC Communication Standard

6 pagesPublished: October 27, 2019

Abstract

With the increasing spread of computer assisted surgery, more and more modern operating rooms are equipped with navigation systems, each coming with its own tracking camera. Since those cameras are part of the closed monolithic navigation system, they can’t be used for other applications than the one intended by the supplier. With the novel service oriented device connectivity standard (IEEE 11073-SDC), introduced by the OR.NET initiative (www.ornet.org), needless double procurements could be avoided and multiple systems could use the same camera that – similar to OR lights – could be installed as a standard equipment in each OR. This would decrease the cost-to-benefit ratio also of new applications that would currently as such not justify to acquire a proprietary tracking camera.
While the integration of a tracking camera to an open medical device IT network can open up for new applications, it should on the other hand not impair the usability and the safety of the navigation system. Therefore, a low latency must be guaranteed between tracking camera and navigational display.
This paper evaluates the integration of an atracsys fusionTrack 500 tracking camera into the OR.NETwork. The response time from a change in the real world to the reception of the corresponding data package is measured to determine the feasibility of an integra- tion without impairing current navigational tasks.
The results show that, as long as the underlying network infrastructure is not at its capacity limit, latencies below 60 ms are achieved. Therefore, the integration of a tracking camera for navigational tasks is feasible.
