ICG/NIR fluorescence imaging has become one of the most valuable technologies in minimally invasive surgery. Especially for intra-operative check of visceral perfusion, the visualisation of biliary structures or lymph node mapping.

VEQTRON® ICG/NIR Imaging System




Fluorescence refers to the ability of some atoms and molecules to absorb light at a particular wavelength (of excitation: Ex) and then to emit light of a longer wavelength during a short-lived emission (Em). This means:

  • Fluorescence allows us to assess blood flow in tissues very well, e.g. anastomosis visualization
  • In the case of tumors, a good visibility of the tumor boundery, so that an exact removal is possible without opening the tumor. The risk of tumor cells spreading in the situs is significantly reduced
  • Less stress for the staff in the clinics. Cost and time savings
  • Metastases become visible
  • Visualization of the lymphatics are possible
  • Presentation of the choledochus
  • Elaborate marking with radio markers is not necessary, therefore less burden for the patient
  • Visualization of the anastomosis in oesophageal carcinoma
  • Various other indications

As of today, we are still at the beginning of the possibilities for indications with fluorescence. Due to new innovative techniques, such as the hand-held camera, fluorescence will also become more and more important in open oncological surgical techniques, e.g. in the parathyroid gland (autofluorescence).

VEQTRON Imaging System offers four different display modes without any lose of image
Standard White Light Mode

3-CMOS white light image which is used for all standard minimal invasive surgeries

Standard Fluorescence Mode

High-quality fluorescence image for detection of ICG

ISO Fluorescence Mode

Fluorescence and white light imagemerging for intensity tracking of ICG direction of flow

Multi-Display Mode

White Light, FluorescenceGreen, ISO Fluorescence and NIR black-white displayed at the same time with option to choose mode on main display


ICG enters circulatory and lymphatic system of human, via serosal, sub-mucosal injection of intravenously injection.

ICG bound with plasma proteins.

After receiving excitatin NIR light of

805-835 nm wavelength, fluorescence signal will be emitted.

„The dream of any surgeon is to see the invisible during surgery, to be more precise and reduce complications. Fluorescence guided surgery is a fairly simple technology that allows surgeons to see better, operate better, improving patient outcomes: We cannot ask more from a medical device!“

Dr. Aleksandar Gluhovic Laparoscopic and General Surgeon, New Hospital Novi Sad, Serbia

„When using VEQTRON Fluorescence System the first time in Serbia, I was really impressed by the outstanding picture quality and the fantastic performance during the use of ICG. Especially the 4-Display Mode is a perfect feature and very useful during the operation.“

Dr. med. Roman Koch General and Visceral Surgeon, Paracelsus-Klinik Henstedt-Ulzburg, Germany

„With ICG visualisation, surgeons have another innovative tool at their disposal. Using an infrared camera, the surgeons can see the areas marked by the dye ICG during the operation and can then safely remove them in the healthy and well perfused area. This also contributes to much faster healing and more safety during an operation.“

Prof. Waleed L. Bukhari Advanced Lap, Bariatric and Metabolic Surgeon, IMC Hospital Jeddah, Saudi Arabia

„This technology is the ultimate one as it allows the surgeon to see the unseen and to minimize complications. Therefore expect the unexpected to work at a macro and micro level of surgical changes in tissue. Thus, to perform the necessary surgical intervention during the same procedure, reducing patient pain and avoiding an unnecessary second surgery.“
