SVS HITC Series - New Technologies in Vascular Surgery

REGISTER HERE for the NEXT webinar Hacking the EMR: Making the EMR work for you, at 6 PM CT on September 7, 2022.   This webinar is a collaboration between the Society for Vascular Surgery Community Practice Section, Health Information Technology Committee, and the Wellness Committee.


Today, we are republishing the Health Information Technology (HITC) Webinar from May 4, 2022, on New Technologies in Vascular Surgery.  New technologies designed to improve surgical techniques are rapidly emerging in the vascular specialty. These technologies include Blue Dop, which assists in determining limb preservation; Voythos, an EMR assistant;  FORS technology, which provides real-time 3D visualization of the full shape of devices inside the body without the need for fluoroscopy; and Cydar AI, which advances surgical visualization and decision-making to build a future where all surgery works exactly as planned.
