Feasibility Study of Utilization of Action Camera, GoPro Hero 4, Google Glass, and Panasonic HX-A100 in Spine Surgery
STUDY DESIGN: Study for feasibility of commercially available action cameras in recording video of spine. OBJECTIVE: Recent innovation of the wearable action camera with high definition video recording enables surgeons to use camera in the operation at ease without high costs. The purpose of this study is to compare the feasibility, safety, efficacy of commercially available action cameras in recording video of spine surgery. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: There are early reports of medical professionals using Google Glass throughout the hospital, Panasonic HX-A100 action camera and GoPro. This study is the first report for spine surgery. METHODS: Three commercially available cameras were tested; GoPro Hero 4 Silver, Google Glass and Panasonic HX-A100 action camera. Usual spine surgery were selected for video recording; Posterior lumbar laminectomy and fusion. Three cameras were used by one surgeon and video was recorded throughout the operation. The comparison was made on the perspective of human factor, specification and video quality. RESULTS: The most convenient and lightweight device for wearing and holding throughout the long operation time was Google glass. Image quality; All devices except Google glass supported HD format and GoPro has unique 2.7K or 4K resolution. Quality of video resolution was best in GoPro. Field of view; GoPro can adjust point of interest, field of view according to the surgery. Narrow FOV option was the best for recording in GoPro to share the video clip. Google glass has potentials by using application programs. Connectivity such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth enables video streaming for audience, but only Google glass has two-way communication feature in device. CONCLUSIONS: Action cameras has the potential to improve patient safety, operator comfort, and procedure efficiency in the field of spinal surgery and the broadcasting a surgery with developing of the device and appl
