A newly granted patent (Publication Number: US11910998B2) describes a medical visualization system that includes a visualisation device with an image sensor and a monitor device. The visualisation device has a handle and an elongated flexible member that can bend in response to user input. The monitor device features a touch-sensitive display with a graphical user interface that allows for the display of actionable items and a live representation of the image data. The system also includes different interface orientation modes and view modes to enhance user experience and control over the visualization process.

Furthermore, the patent details additional features such as an orientation sensor in the monitor device to determine the interface orientation mode, connection ports for the visualisation device, and the ability to capture images and video sequences. The system also includes options for enabling an inverted view mode, displaying an invert interface button, and storing information about the mode in which the device was operating when capturing images or videos. These features aim to provide healthcare professionals with a versatile and user-friendly tool for medical visualization, enhancing their ability to capture and interact with visual data during procedures.
