Paper Abstract

Visualization is the key to surgery, but limiting one's "vision" to visible light images received by the human eye ignores a lot of available data. Imaging technology such as hyperspectral and infrared imaging can greatly expand the amount and type of information available to the surgeon. We propose several areas in which this type of technology can be useful in medicine, paying particular attention to the way in which this technology might be best integrated into current operating room setups.
