Large bowel segment from porcine preparation with the mesentery interrupted temporarily with clamp placement.
|Imaging distance is 30cm. In the visible spectrum with occlusion of the segmental flow to the bowel, the change in blood flow cannot be visualized.
|Imaging distance is 30cm. With iCertainty visualization, the change in perfusion to the bowel and the hyperemic reprofusion response is readily visualized.|
The expert surgeon’s choice of transection sites are significantly discordant with the sites determined by real-time iCertainty imaging.
