3D image localization and depth information anytime during surgery to help guide proper and precise resection.1
Visualization and localization of sentinel lymph nodes in 3D supports image guidance for incision and resection enabling faster and minimally invasive surgeries.2
Examination of structures directly after resection provides visual documentation that all sentinel lymph nodes have been successfully removed.1 Ex vivo imaging of radioactive labeled tumor specimens can aid in determining margins during surgery.
