First clinical study comparing hyperspectral imaging technique with ICG fluorescence angiography

Recently, for the first time, a comparative study on hyperspectral imaging (TIVITA® Tissue) and fluorescence angiography (indocyanine green) for the determination of the cutting edge in colorectal resections was published in the International Journal of Colorectal Disease by the team of Prof. Ines Gockel and PD Dr. Boris Jansen-Winkeln. This prospective, human study showed that both methods visualize blood perfusion comparably well and safely, so that with their support well perfused anastomoses can be created.
We are very pleased with this publication and the positive results, which once again emphasize the clinical relevance and performance of hyperspectral imaging.
