NIR Fluorescence Imaging System for Breast CancerThe LIGHTVISION NIR fluorescence imaging system from Shimadzu Corp. is designed to support breast cancer treatment through the visualization of lymph vessels and blood vessels based on the detection of NIR fluorescent light emitted from indocyanine green (ICG).

The system creates real-time contrast images of lymph vessels below tissue surfaces by administering ICG through the lymph vessels. It exposes the corresponding tissue to excitation light, and then detects and visualizes the slight emission of NIR light from the ICG, which is invisible to the naked eye.

With an enhanced view of the lymph vessels, the surgeon can perform procedures while monitoring on screen the position of the vessels being excised. This is especially useful for identifying the position of sentinel lymph nodes, which are helpful in diagnosing the metastasis status of cancer cells during breast cancer surgery.

The system also allows confirmation of blood flow during surgery, which is especially useful for evaluating blood flow through flaps and anastomotic (connecting/opening) vessels during breast reconstructive surgery.
