Fluorescence imaging is a simple and powerful tool to help surgeons visualize
in real-time lymphatic structures, organ perfusion and vasculature.
It has proven to be useful in multiple specialities like Surgical Oncology, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Lymphatic surgery, Vascular Surgery and other applications.
In fluorescence imaging, surgeons employ an imaging system like the .nm Fluorescence imaging with a contrast dye.
The contrast dye is directly administered by the surgeons themselves and the imaging system is used to scan the area of interest to see regions of interest and make necessary and critical decisions.
Advantages of fluorescence imaging
No use of radioactive contrast dyes
Imaging with high contrast and sensitivity
Low cost and safety
Faster, more procedures with better results
Used directly by surgeons
No additional personnel needed
Real-time imaging allows on-the-table decision making
Can be repeated multiple times without any harm to patients
Fluorescence-guided surgery is currently used in multiple surgical situations
