A THIRD EYE FOR SURGEONS
POSTOPERATIVE COMPLICATIONS: FINDINGS
THE PRINCIPLE OF FLUORESCENCE IMAGING
Injection of a fluorescent agent during surgery.
Today only the indocyanine green (ICG) is usable commercially.
Lighting and excitation of the fluorescent agent in situ.
Visualization of the area of interest on the display in real-time.
THE BENEFITS OF FLUORESCENCE IMAGING
Visualization of biological phenomena invisible to the naked eye. Real-time clinical decision aid. More accurate surgical decisions
A better preservation of healthy tissues. Reduced postoperative complication risk. Shorter hospital stays.
A technology that can be used over a wide range of surgical indications. Reduced surgical complication-related costs. A technology that is accessible to the greatest number.

'This device gives us a real-time image. For the surgeon, this is like having an extra eye. It’s intra-operative augmented reality.'
