New Multimedia Article Format Revolutionizes Medical Research

Fertility and Sterility, the flagship journal of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) and its publisher Elsevier have created, and for the first time ever published,  a new multimedia article format that integrates video and traditional print research.  Online video and traditional print were previously two separate and unrelated worlds in scientific research. The new mechanism allows videos to be cited the same way as a written article in a traditional print medical journal and seamlessly unifies online multimedia content and print journals. Researchers can watch footage of innovations and techniques and learn previously inaccessible information in new non-written formats while still being able to find this information through traditional medical print sources.

Dr Palter was quoted by the American Society for Reproductive Medicine:

“For the last 200 years, medical publishing remained unchanged. Our solution accommodates non-print work through fully integrated multimedia, opens up a whole new form of learning, and allows readers to become part of an ongoing interactive discussion,” says Dr. Steven Palter, the Video and New Media Editor of Fertility and Sterility. Dr. Palter, who developed the concept and spearheaded the project, says, “With this effort, we have bridged the gap separating the digital and traditional medical literature. This integration will lead to exciting new directions in research.”

Intrafallopian in vitro fertilization is more risky, says Yale researcher Palter

Contrary to official figures, two methods of fertilization — implanting the embryo in the uterus or in the Fallopian tube — yield comparable success rates, a study by a School of Medicine researcher concludes.  The study by Dr. Steven Palter, assistant professor and clinic chief of reproductive medicine in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, contradicts statistics indicating that implantation in the Fallopian tube, which is more risky and more costly, has a higher success rate for fertilization. Those statistics were published by the Centers for Disease Control and the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology.

Yale Physician Palter Conducts World’s First Endoscopic Surgery Using High Definition Television

A Yale physician has conducted the world’s first endoscopic surgical procedures using high definition television (HDTV), which more than doubles the sharpness of the image when compared to current technology.  Steven Palter, M.D., assistant professor of obstetrics and gynecology and Clinic Chief of Infertility at Yale School of Medicine, announced in a special keynote presentation at the Global Congress of Gynecologic Endoscopy that has performed the first endoscopic procedures with HDTV.  HDTV is popular because its resolution increases the sense of realism for the viewer. Until now, HDTV cameras have been prohibitively large and expensive, making them unusable for surgical endoscopy. A specially designed miniaturized HDTV camera system, along with high definition upgrades in the accompanying processing and projection systems, were used in these procedures.  “This technology has never been used this way,” said Palter, who spoke at a special plenary session about how digital technology will change medicine in the future. “We did a series of cases using the equipment, and they were all successful. The system provided the best image we have ever seen.”
