Paper Abstract

Indocyanine green (ICG) is a fluorescent dye, well known in Ophthalmology and Gastro-enterology, for its properties under infrared illumination. ICG was intravenously injected to hamsters (3mg/kg) whose skin was then illuminated with a laser diode (l=810nm+/-10). With appropriate selection of emission filters, ICG can significantly enhance the contrast of subcutaneous vessels when recording reflected light. Similarly, the subcutaneous vascular network in depth is clearly visible when recording its fluorescence emission.
