Fluorescence Imaging

Fluorescence techniques in minimally invasive surgery visualize features that are invisible under conventional white light. Autofluorescence (AF) uses the endogenous fluorescence of the mucosa to differentiate malignant tumors from healthy tissue at an early stage. Photodynamic diagnosis (PDD) detects the pathological accumulation of fluorescent porphyrin products in bladder tumors and allows rigorous treatment of these malignant changes. Use of near-infrared (NIR) imaging expands the spectrum of diagnostic options and enables the perfusion evaluation of organs and tissues and the visualization of the bile duct or visually supports the diagnosis of lymph nodes. Indocyanine green (ICG) is used in this case. These different procedures rely on the D-LIGHT light sources as well as on specially adapted telescopes and our HD camera systems.

In combination with the IMAGE1 S™ camera system, these fluorescence methods offer physicians additional optical support for diagnostic decision-making.
