Developments in the architecture and organization of high-performance general-purpose computer systems are largely ignored by the technology infrastructure of the modern laparoscopic surgical suite. The current state of technology for laparoscopy is a camera and monitor linked via a controller that distributes analog or digital video signals without regard to their content. This article discusses the opportunities that will be created by inserting general-purpose high-performance computing into the information stream between camera and display. We envision that the use of this technology will radically transform laparoscopy from its current state as ;;surgery by pictures'' into an entirely new, information-rich surgical environment.
