Near-infrared fluorescence (NIRF) imaging system is an emerging clinical technology that irradiates near-infrared excitation light, permits relatively deep photon penetration into tissues when exogenous near-infrared fluorophores are introduced. It is a system that allows the observation of blood flow and lymph flow under the tissue surface by providing surgeons highly specific images of targeted tissue by imaging the near-infrared fluorescence. The imaging system provide an image of a broad area due to the large field of view, such as the abdomen, providing a quick overview and real time identification of assessing blood flow through blood vessels in an abdominal flap or the gastric tube. Clinical applications of near-infrared fluorescence imaging system are increased for a variety of surgical procedures.
NIRF imaging requires administration of a fluorescence-imaging agent that can be excited at near-infrared (NIR) wavelengths of ?760?nm. Fluorescent contrast agents not only provide enhanced contrast but also reveal specific molecular events associated with cancer formation and progression. Indocyanine green fluorescence imaging, enables simple and real time identification of lymphatic vessels and confirmation of blood flow during surgery. NIRF imaging systems play an important role in cancer surgeries for instance, Shimadzu Corporation LIGHTVISION is designed to support breast cancer treatment by providing visuals of lymph vessels and blood vessels, based on the detection of near-infrared fluorescent light emitted from indocyanine green.
The global near-infrared fluorescence imaging system market is projected to expand at a considerable pace from 2018 to 2026. The key driver that projects the growth of near-infrared fluorescence imaging market is its increasing significance in the critical surgeries, such as breast cancer. Moreover, technological advancements and high precision have increased the adoption of near-infrared fluorescence imaging system in numerous fields of medical sciences. Rise in concerns about the reduction in health care spending and increase in demand to achieve accurate surgical outcomes have induced health care providers across the globe to focus on enhancing operating room efficiency, while minimizing the required resources and related costs. This is facilitated by continuous technological advances in the NIRF imaging systems that have brought significant change in the way surgical procedures are currently carried out.
