Background: 3D (Three dimensional) imaging system provides depth perception of surgical field that may make laparoscopic surgery move precise and safe. There have many studies showed that can improve inanimate laparoscopic skill compared with 2D system. Development of 4K (Ultra high definition) imaging system, the advantage include more detailed, color-correct images and greater depth perception. As well this study aims to compared the effect of 4K imaging system to time for complete laparoscopic skill test over 3D imaging system
Methods: Sixth year medical student and first year resident include into this study. There were assign in two groups (3D and 4K) to perform 3 laparoscopic skill test (ring transfer, pattern cutting, suture/knotting) then they were switch to the other arm. Time to complete tasks were measured and total time to complete all test were also recorded and number of mistake were note in both groups. All participants completed questionnaires to report the inconveniences that occurred during the skill test.
Results: Time to complete all tasks in 3D imaging system was shorter than 4K imaging system (661 sec vs. 746.88 sec, p < 0.001). If consider time to complete each task the result showed shorter time in 3D imaging system than 4K in all task, ring transfer.
Conclusions: The 3D vision systems significantly improve speed and accuracy when compared to the 4K vision system based on shorter performance time in non experience trainees.
