Abstract

BACKGROUND: Fluorescence-based enhanced reality is a software that provides quantitative fluorescence angiography by computing the fluorescence intensity time-to-peak after intravenous indocyanine green. Hyperspectral imaging is a contrast-free, optical imaging modality which measures tissue oxygenation. METHODS: In 8 pigs, an ischemic bowel segment created by dividing the arcade branches was imaged using hyperspectral imaging and fluorescence-based enhanced reality. Tissue oxygenation values were acquired through a hyperspectral imaging system. Subsequently, fluorescence angiography was performed using a near-infrared laparoscopic camera after intravenous injection of 0.2 mg/kg of indocyanine green. The time-to-peak fluorescence signal was analyzed through a proprietary software to realize a perfusion map. This was overlaid onto real-time images to obtain fluorescence-based enhanced reality. Simultaneously, 9 adjacent regions of interest were selected and superimposed onto the real-time video, thereby obtaining hyperspectral-based enhanced reality. Fluorescence-based enhanced reality and hyperspectral-based enhanced reality were superimposed allowing a comparison of both imaging modalities. Local capillary lactate levels were sampled at the regions of interest. Two prediction models using the local capillary lactate levels were extrapolated based on both imaging systems. RESULTS: For all regions of interest, the mean local capillary lactate levels were 4.67 ± 4.34 mmol/L, the mean tissue oxygenation was 45.9 ± 18.9%, and the mean time-to-peak was 10 ± 9.4 seconds. Pearson's test between fluorescence-based enhanced reality-time-to-peak and hyperspectral imaging-tissue oxygenation at the corresponding regions of interest gave an R = -0.66 (P < .0001). The hyperspectral imaging lactate prediction model proved more accurate than the fluorescence-based enhanced reality-based model (P < .0001). CONCLUSION: Bowel perfusion was quantified using hyperspectral imaging and fluorescence angiography. Hyperspectral imaging yielded more accurate results than fluorescence angiography. Hyperspectral-based enhanced reality may prove to be a useful, contrast-free intraoperative tool to quantify bowel ischemia.
