Near-infrared fluorescence imaging of liver metastases in rats using indocyanine green.


BACKGROUND Near-infrared (NIR) fluorescence imaging using indocyanine green (ICG) is a promising technique to obtain real-time assessment of the extent and number of colorectal liver metastases during surgery. The current study aims to optimize dosage and timing of ICG administration. MATERIALS AND METHODS Liver tumors were induced in 18 male WAG/Rij rats… (More)
