Near-infrared fluorescence (NIRF) imaging with intraoperative administration of indocyanine green (ICG) is a technology with emerging applications in urologic surgery. ICG is a water-soluble dye that fluoresces bright green when viewed under near-infrared light (700-1000 nm). This technology has been applied to robotic partial nephrectomy, first to potentially allow for the differentiation of renal tumor from normal parenchyma. In this application, it has been hypothesized that normal kidney… CONTINUE READING
