Fluorescence Imaging in Open Surgery
The VITOM® ICG system allows fluorescence imaging in open surgery. At the same time, the IMAGE1 camera platform provides brilliant and high-contrast FULL HD images. An easy transition between the white light mode and excitation light for ICG is possible via a footswitch.
Cost benefits may arise as components from the minimally invasive KARL STORZ ICG system can also be used. To enable fluorescence imaging in open surgery, only the telescope must be exchanged and a holding system added. High-quality visualization under white light is of course retained in the VITOM® ICG system.
Fields of application for VITOM® ICG:
- Perfusion assessment in the case of anastomoses or flap plasty*
- Lymph node detection*
- Bile duct visualization*
* The approval of the fluorescence markers and their application may vary due to national regulations.
