Evaluation Of Intraoperative Near-Infrared Fluorescence Visualization Of The Lung Tumor Margin With Indocyanine Green Inhalation

Question  Can an intraoperative near-infrared fluorescence imaging technique be used to detect lung tumor margin via inhalation delivery of indocyanine green? Findings  In this diagnostic study, the fluorescent signal of inhaled indocyanine green was observed throughout healthy lung tissue but was rarely detected in tumor tissue. Inhalation at a 20-fold lower dose of indocyanine green…
