System for Fluorescence-Guided Surgery
The technology enables the surgeon to place and navigate e.g. a laparoscope, within an organ in an extremely precise, safe, and reliable manner.
One of the main challenges associated with laparoscopy is the exact placement of the instrument within the body of a patient. To address this issue, DKFZ researchers have developed a system for computer assisted surgery that combines low invasivity with robust and reliable behavior.
The presented system uses 3D medical image information from a patient’s body that additionally includes data regarding the spatial position of a purpose-made fluorescent marker. That data is processed and used in combination with an augmented reality visualization tool and a fluorescent detection device. The resulting information concerning the spatial relationship between the visualization tool and the marked structures of the body enables the surgeon to place and navigate the instrument, e.g. the laparoscope, within an organ in an extremely precise, safe, and reliable manner (see Figure; Wild et al. 2016).

Novel and innovative method / system for instrument navigation within a patient’s body.
The technology is particularly well suited for use in combination with fluorescent markers and tracers such as the new PSMA-HBED-fluorescent compounds (P-1124).
