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.
