― Case Study ―

Indocyanine green (ICG) injected into a body emits light with a peak wavelength of 800-850nm when illuminated with near-infrared light of 760-780nm. The camera unit of this system enables visualization of invisible near- infrared rays through monitors.


High sensitivity CCD image sensor to Near-infrared light

The system is installed with a high-sensitivity CCD to near-infrared light, which has the lateral overflow drain (LOD) structure, and enables to detect both visible and near-infrared radiation and present them on monitors setting the special filter on the CCD.

The left picture is just an image for giving a better understanding of the appearance of this system. Special sterile drapes must be used to cover the camera system completely during surgery.

Easy maneuverable Camera Unit

Both the color image and the fluorescence signal are presented on an external monitor, providing the surgeon with an unhindered view. Close-up recording is also available by spinning a camera head to adjust focus.

Selective Recording of Color fluorescent images and Monochromatic fluorescent images

Recording system of color fluorescent images and monochromatic fluorescent images is included as standard. Selective recording for meeting your purpose is available by the switches on the consol panel

Excitation and supplemental lighting-LED on Camera Unit

Supplemental lighting-White LED, in addition to NIR excitation LED, is equipped on the face of the camera unit. By using these lightning systems, when lights including surgical lights with near-infrared fluorescence are turned off, the camera imaging head can capture near-infrared fluorescence in a brighter view (about 2000lux). Please turn off surgical lights. The visibility of fluorescent imaging depends on the conditions.

Movable Small Controller

The small controller is movable from the camera unit, so an operator or an assistant is easy to command this system remotely.

Easy Recording on SDHC Card

The images and videos can be recorded by simple steps; insert a memory card in a SDHC slot on the controller unit and push a record button. More than 60 minutes of videos can be recorded on a 4GB-SDHC card. The video can transport to a computer (by using MicroDVR, standard attached software)
