Abstract

Fluorescence guided surgery (FGS) is an emerging technology that has demonstrated improved surgical outcomes. However, dim lighting conditions required by current FGS systems are disruptive to standard surgical workflow. We present a novel FGS system capable of imaging fluorescence under normal room light by using pulsed excitation and gated acquisition. Images from tissue-simulating phantoms confirm visual detection down to 0.25 μM of protoporphyrin IX under 125 μW / cm 2 of ambient light, more than an order of magnitude lower than that measured with the Zeiss Pentero in the dark. Resection of orthotopic brain tumors in mice also suggests that the pulsed-light system provides superior sensitivity in vivo.
