Augmented Reality Fluorescence GLOW800

GLOW800 Augmented Reality Fluorescence: ICA Aneurysm

View new GLOW800 augmented reality (AR) fluorescence from Leica Microsystems recorded during a neurosurgical procedure performed by Dr. Prof. Cleopatra Charalampaki at the Department of Neurosurgery, Cologne Medical Center, Germany. 

GLOW800 is a new approach to vascular fluorescence imaging. The technology fuses the high contrast of near infrared (NIR) fluorescence imaging with the full visual spectrum of white light into a single, real-time image. Surgeons no longer need to switch from the true-color microscope view to traditional black and white fluorescence view in order to view blood flow, providing a more complete view of anatomical structures, without interruption.

Ease of use during surgical procedures

In this video, Dr. Cleopatra Charalampaki explains how simple it is to use GLOW800, available on the ARveo surgical microscope without interrupting the operation’s workflow.  GLOW800 can be activated with the touch of a button, and real-time fluorescence can be observed simultaneously under natural white light in the operating field.

Overcoming surgical challenges with GLOW800

In this video, Dr. Cleopatra Charalampaki discusses previous challenges in vascular neurosurgery of reconciling alternating views between ICG NIR and white light. She explains how GLOW800, available on the ARveo surgical microscope, helps overcome these challenges by giving you one uninterrupted view during surgery.

Leica Microsystems' innovations in surgical microscopy featured on renowned television series

Leica Microsystems’ Medical Division recently was featured during the nationally televised program "Innovations with Ed Begley Jr." (http://innovationstelevision.com/).  

Four prominent surgeons and Leica Microsystems President Markus Lusser discussed the many ways Leica Microsystems is advancing surgical microscopy by integrating enhanced digital technologies directly into the operating microscope.

Advantages of GLOW800 AR fluorescence compared to NIR imaging

Compare visualization of cerebrovascular flow with GLOW800 AR fluorescence to traditional near infrared (NIR) imaging in this video.

See how GLOW800 augmented reality (AR) fluorescence takes the high contrast of NIR imaging in combination with ICG and fuses it with the naturally-colored microscope view in real-time.

First impressions of GLOW800 during vascular neurosurgery: Prof. Raphael Guzman, MD

Professor Raphael Guzman, MD talks about his experience when he used GLOW800 augmented reality (AR) fluorescence for the first time in the OR. He discusses the advantages over alternative fluorescence technologies which do not allow blood flow and anatomy to be viewed simultaneously.

Professor Guzman talks about the future of neurosurgical imaging

In this video Professor Raphael Guzman, MD talks about the benefit of having more information during surgery by integrating augmented imaging technologies, such as GLOW800 AR fluorescence and neuronavigation, in one microscope.
