Fluorescent Incisionless Cholangiography

A live surgery video preseted by Dr. Fernando Dip, Dr. Jorge Falco, Dr. Raul Pecero, Dr. Fernanda Montesinos, Dr. Lucia Infante and Dr. Raul Rosenthal 


Presented here is a case of a patient with symptomatic gallbladder stones who underwent a laparoscopic cholecystectomy with fluorescent cholangiography.


 45 minutes before the procedure began, a dose of 0.05 milligrams /kilogram was  intravenously administered. ICG is excreted by the liver and stored in the main bile duct.


We begin the laparoscopic procedure in a standard fashion. Once we perform a blunt dissection of the tissue that is in front of the …

Artificial Intelligence and Fluorescence Guided Surgery for Intraoperative Cancer Classification

Fluorescence guided surgery uses indocyanine green and near-infrared end-laparoscopy to visualise tissue perfusion. The specific characteristics of neoplasia including angiogenesis means differences in tissue behaviour to the dye can be exploited most efficiently if artificial intelligence methods (in particular bio-physics inspired modelling) are employed. Here we show this in action.


The initial clinical pilot is now published open access online in the British Journal of Surgery


The work is part of a research consortium comprising University College Dublin, The Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland, the Mater Misericordiae University Hospital and IBM Research in Europe and is …

Ureteral Identification Using ICG During Colorectal Procedures

Near Infrared Fluorescent Guided Surgery for Brain Tumors with Dr. John Y. K. Lee

Dr. Lee is Associate Professor of Neurosurgery and Otolaryngology at the University of Pennsylvania. He has published extensively on fluorescent molecular imaging, and he specializes in minimally invasive neurosurgery including endoscopy and Gamma Knife radiosurgery.

In this video, Dr. Lee describes his five year experience with high dose, delayed indocyanine green (TumorGlowTM aka Second Window IcG) for brain tumors. The technique works best for contrast-enhancing tumors such as high grade gliomas, all brain metastasis, meningiomas, pituitary adenomas and other histologies. The technique has high sensitivity and high positive predictive value with excellent signal to noise as the brain's intact blood-brain …
