OBJECTIVE: The goal was to evaluate an easy-to-construct digital system for documentation of intraoperative still and motion photography. In addition, the management of pre- and postoperative images was considered. METHODS: A Macintosh system (both hardware and software) is described in detail, as are techniques and use. RESULTS: The system has proved to be easy to use. It is user-friendly and makes it possible to rapidly edit and store data from preoperative studies, as well as intraoperative videography and still photography. The cost is minimal, compared with other commercially available systems. CONCLUSION: Digital videography and still photography can easily be accomplished with minimal modifications to existing hardware and software systems. Patient x-rays can also be incorporated into this system, for easy retrieval.
