Paper Abstract

Surgical technology advances slowly and only when there is overwhelming need for change. Change is resisted by surgeons and is made hard by FDA rules that inhibit innovation. There is a pressing need to improve surgeon's visualization of the operative field during laparoscopic surgery to minimize the risk for significant injury that can occur when surgeons are operating around delicate, hidden structures. We propose to use a Digital Light Processor-based hyperspectral imaging system to assist an operating surgeon's ability to see through tissues and identify otherwise hidden structures such as bile ducts during laparoscopic cholecystectomy.
