"Enhancing Safety in MIS with Advanced Photoimaging"

The expanding role of minimally invasive surgery (MIS) across multiple surgical specialties continues to be driven by technological advancements in instrumentation and related equipment. Advanced technologies that provide clinically differentiated visualization during MIS procedures by facilitating the identification of critical anatomic structures and tissue perfusion enhance patient safety and contribute to improved surgical outcomes. This presentation will provide a review of three advanced photoimaging technologies: indocyanine green imaging, lighted ureteral catheters, and real-time video enhancement.
