Nerve damage during surgery is a common morbidity experienced by patients that leaves them with chronic pain and/or loss of function. Currently, no clinically approved imaging technique exists to enhance nerve visualization in the operating room. Fluorescence image-guided surgery has gained in popularity and clinical acceptance over the past decade with a handful of imaging systems approved for clinical use. However, contrast agent development to complement these fluorescence-imaging systems… CONTINUE READING
