Near-Infrared Fluorescence Imaging System - LIGHTVISIONLITERATURE
High Definition Near-Infrared Fluorescence Imaging System
ICG Fluorescence using Near-infrared light
The near-infrared fluorescence imaging system irradiates near-infrared excitation light on an ICG (indocyanine green) contrast medium injected into the blood vessels, lymph ducts, or other areas. It is a system that allows the observation of blood flow and lymph flow under the tissue surface by imaging the near-infrared fluorescence. This method, called ICG fluorescence imaging, enables the simple and real time identification of lymphatic vessels and the confirmation of blood flow during surgery. It has been confirmed to be useful for the quick localization of sentinel lymph nodes and, tissue and organ perfusion.
Accurate Surgical Navigation with High Definition Images
High Definition Image Quality
Equipped with high definition sensors, the system can display detailed high definition images. In addition to clearly confirming blood vessels and lymph ducts emitting fluorescent light, the high-resolution images can also be used to confirm the positional relationship between surrounding tissue and surgical tools during surgery. Given the accuracy and speed demands of the surgical environment, this system assists in making more accurate decisions more rapidly.
Display Images Clearly on a Large Monitor
It is possible to display the images on a large remotely located monitor to allow information sharing with all the surgical staff.
Simultaneous Three-Image Display Provides Clear Understanding at a Glance
The system can display three images, a Optical image, a near-infrared fluorescence image, and a combined visible plus near-infrared fluorescence image, at the same time. This view enables confirmation of the area with ICG illumination by comparing it to the surrounding tissue, which is especially effective for determining the ablation range.
This enables a large amount of information to be referenced and confirmed at a glance during surgery, which can help shorten procedure times.
Colors Can Be Changed to Improve the Visibility of Blood Vessel or Lymphatic Vessel
To improve the visualization of blood vessels or lymph ducts, the color for the near-infrared fluorescence image can be changed to a white, green or blue color that is easier to distinguish from the surrounding tissues or light reflection of blood vessels or body fluids.
An easy to use button is used to change the colour, so that the optimum color can be selected according to the condition of the surgical site.
Imaging is Possible in a Bright Room
Images can be acquired with the operating room lighting left ON, which means images can be compared to the affected area.
Excellent Operability Allows for Concentration on Surgery
The self-supported extendable arm allows hands-free operation. In addition to reducing the burden on surgical personnel, it can also display images without blur due to hand movement.
Wide Camera Movement Range
Freely Adjustable Camera Positioning
With a fully balanced arm, you can quickly position the camera height and angle as you wish. Images can be acquired via the optimal camera position depending on the type of surgery or condition of the affected area.
Ensures Working Distance Required for Surgical Work
Due to the bright light source and high sensitivity image sensor, a working distance (distance between the surgical field and camera) of about 50 to 70 cm can be maintained during imaging. Consequently, imaging can be performed at the same time as working in the surgical field.
Images Can Be Confirmed on a Small Monitor on the Main Unit
The operator can check the system operating situation and adjust image quality with a small monitor on the main unit.
Camera Adjustments by Remote Control
Camera adjustment by remote control is possible. The remote control includes three automatic adjustment functions :
exposure, focus, and white balance, which quickly optimize the image display.
Main Unit Is Easy to Move and Reposition
The main unit is designed so that it can be moved reliably between operating rooms. Handles are provided on the front and back, so that the unit can be easily repositioned within the operating room.
Remote Adjustable Field-of-View Camera Platform(optional)
An optional camera platform is available for adjusting the camera angle by remote control.
It can be operated from a location away from the main unit to adjust the camera field of view, so that the area of interest is displayed.
