Endoscopic Fluorescence Imaging System

The PINPOINT Endoscopic Fluorescence Imaging System combines – into a single laparoscopy platform – the latest in high definition white-light video with SPY Fluorescence imaging, resulting in bright, clear images.

Visualize tissue perfusion and anatomical structures in a different light

PINPOINT is the only laparoscopic imaging system offering simultaneous, real-time, true HD white light and on-demand HD fluorescence imaging through a single laparoscope. This enables surgeons to visualize tissue perfusion and anatomical structures during multiple minimally invasive procedures. The fluorescent imaging agent binds to protein in blood and is metabolized and excreted by the liver thereby providing laparoscopic visualization of the hepatic artery and bile ducts. In colorectal, esophageal and bariatric surgeries, SPY Fluorescence enables a precise visual assessment of blood flow in vessels, as well as the quality of tissue perfusion. In laparoscopic cholecystectomy, bile duct misidentification and hepatic artery injury with white light endoscopy alone is most commonly associated with early surgeon experience, aberrant patient anatomy and obesity. Intraoperative fluorescence imaging may be used to visualize vessels and structures, which may lessen the risk of complications during minimally invasive surgery.1,2

Intraoperative Perfusion Assessment

Enhances surgeons ability to visualize and analyze tissue perfusion and structural anatomy intraoperatively and in real-time.

Increased Confidence

Fluorescence imaging modalities may assist surgeons with critical decisions during surgery.

Improved Outcomes

Enhances the surgeon’s ability to assess perfusion, which may improve patient outcomes.

NOVADAQ’s New PINPOINT Camera is the next generation of fluorescence imaging technology.

The newly introduced camera features leading-edge sensor technology and its custom optics provide for more vividly colored and higher contrast images with less noise across all PINPOINT display modes.

Dedicated to Improving Outcomes

Published literature has long confirmed the significant social and economic burden associated with postoperative complications. More than 260 peer-reviewed medical journals have demonstrated an improvement in patient outcomes and a reduction in hospital costs as a result of SPY Fluorescence technology. NOVADAQ’s imaging products, including PINPOINT, uphold a strong track record of assisting surgeons in making critical decisions that may reduce the occurrence of costly complications.


PINPOINT offers brilliant, high-definition, white-light video with the added advantage of SPY Fluorescence imaging technology, which has been demonstrated as beneficial in a variety of surgical applications.
