Image-guided surgery with intraoperative macroscopic fluorescence systems provides surgeons with enhanced anatomical guidance. The addition of microscopic fluorescence tissue pathological assessment may provide immediate, actionable information that may be used to improve diagnostic potential and further guide surgical treatments. The Cellvizio platform with NIR miniprobes will be compatible and complementary to existing macroscopic NIR endoscopic platforms proposed by a majority of surgical endoscopy manufacturers.
