Welcome to the Insight Gallery! We would
like to show you the stunning images and full motion video that we
shoot in surgery, but since internet technology simply isnt
to that level yet, we can only show you a few shots that simply
demonstrates that Insight
knows how to get the shot. To explain why video looks fantastic
when played on tape but deteriorates so badly once it is posted on
the web is an explanation that is usually understood only by
computer engineers and graphic artists that work on computers.
Without going into details, we even wish there was a way to make
still video look as good as photography on the web, and although
that day may not be too far off, today the technology just isn't
What you see here is a small collection of shots from various
surgical procedures taken from several hospitals all across the
country. This Gallery is
designed to demonstrate the optimal camera angles used to capture
certain procedures. We have chosen not to show any endoscopic
shots here, since those shots reflect the surgeon as cameraman and
not Insights ability.
Some day this page will also serve as a showcase for demonstrating
video resolution, definition, movement, with audio portions.
Saphenous Vein Graft Anastomosed to
Aorta in Coronary Artery Bypass
Shooting Open Heart Surgery requires multiple cameras trained
at several areas of the body at once. With the
Insight SurgiCam, getting all the fine
detail without having to ask the surgeon to pause is essential.

Harvesting the Patellar Tendon for
Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction

Small incisions sometimes require more
attention from the Director and Camera Crew than large ones. When
teaching surgical technique, multiple camera angles and detailed
description are essential.
Aortic Graft Anastomosed to

One important feature in designing the
SurgiCam Jib Arm was allowing Insight to quickly get around a
Surgeon. Utilizing a remote pan-tilt camera head on the arm allows us
to do this without even touching the camera or arm.
Open Rotator Cuff Repair
University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, Pittsburgh,
It is always easier for the human eye to get its anatomical
bearings with a moving shot, rather than a still photo. Yet sometimes
it is also necessary to enhance the viewers understanding by
placing labels over the anatomical features.
Reapproximated to the Humeral Head in a Stabilization Procedure for
Believe it or not, shooting large wounds does not present the
difficulties that shooting small wounds do, e.g.: the surgeons
head. To increase the challenge even more, add to the small wound a
deep wound. Insights SurgiCam and PortaJib have practically
taken these challenges away, allowing us to reposition cameras
quickly with little or no delay.

Transvaginally Grasping the
Pubocervical Fascia (Pubouterine Ligament) in Surgical Correction of
Stress Urinary Incontinence
The surgeon told us we would not be able to get this shot,
that it was too deep, and had artwork ready just in case. We not only
got the shot, but also captured every suture that was placed into the
pubocervical fascia for this four point suspension of the bladder

Teaching at the backtable or mayo stand
is just as important as teaching the surgery. Cameras must be
repositioned quickly, since the patients are still under
Tempe St. Lukes Hospital, Tempe, Arizona
Cadaveric dissections are great
teaching modules for conceptualizing the anatomy. Insight will often
integrate a portion of a cadaveric dissection into an actual surgery
to help show anatomy that is otherwise hidden.

Keeping with the surgeons point
of view is important, even when the patient is turned upside down.
This gives the viewers the perspective they need when they are
performing the procedure themselves.
