What is the future of medicine? To answer that question a film team of German TV station HealthTV visited Inselspital and CAScination on 3 July. During their visit in Bern they were able to see for themselves that the future of medicine has already begun and will bring major improvements for patients.

CAScination’s navigation software is a good example for efficient treatment of tumor patients. CT scans taken prior to the intervention allow a precise localization of the tumor and an accurate planning of all stages of the intervention. During the intervention the navigation software and its 3D visualization of the patient the doctors are always in full control and can destroy the tumor precisely. The successful destruction of the tumor can be controlled by comparing pre and post intervention images.

The procedure is gentle for the patients. The time under anaesthesia is relatively short, the procedure is minimally invasive, so that no large wounds remain. Patients usually can leave the hospital shortly after the intervention. In addition, the radiation exposure during the entire procedure is significantly lower than with comparable treatments.

During the shooting in Bern, both an intervention at the Inselspital and interviews in the offices of CAScination were filmed. After completion of production and editing, the five-minute report will be shown on the German TV channel HealthTV and on its YouTube channel. The documentary is scheduled for Autumn 2018. We will inform you of this.
