Duration Approx. 50 minutes

Based on preoperative imaging radionavigation may aid in more precise anatomical localization of target tissue. A more precise localization may be obtained using fluorescent tracers. Tissue penetration of light in the near infra-red spectrum surpasses that of visual light and has therefore been used to highlight both anatomical and tumour-specific structures.

In this webinar we will discuss the basics of fluorophore use and present examples of their use in urological surgery. The future of fluorescent tracers will be highlighted.
