Uses of near-infrared light for real time image guided surgery

Abstract:

Fluorescence is a technology where a fluorophore is excited by light at a specific wavelength and light is emitted at a longer wavelength and can be detected. This has been applied for imaging in surgery because in the near infra-red spectrum, light can penetrate through overlying tissue and provide information to the surgeon about underlying structures. Two important applications of fluorescence include identification of critical anatomical structures to prevent injury and guide dissectio...
