Seeing Beyond the Boundaries of the Human Eye to Visualize Perfusion in Real Time in the Operating Room.
The SPY Elite is the first and most advanced fluorescence imaging system that enables surgeons performing open procedures, such as breast and other reconstruction, gastrointestinal and cardiothoracic surgery, to visualize microvascular blood flow and perfusion in tissue intraoperatively. The SPY Elite provides images that may assist surgeons in making critical decisions in the operating room, which can reduce rates of postoperative complications and decrease healthcare costs.
The SPY Elite’s innovative SPY-Q software provides surgeons with a range of on-screen tools to objectively analyze blood flow. This objective information can complement the surgeon’s clinical perspective, providing a comprehensive view of perfusion. Contour mapping, for example, allows surgeons to visualize different levels of blood flow in the tissue according to contour thresholds.
The SPY Elite is easily transportable from room to room, delivering fluorescence imaging throughout the OR. Set up can be managed by the operating room staff and the articulating arm and camera head are controlled by the surgeon. In addition to providing intraoperative visualization of blood flow, the high quality images captured and streamed to the SPY Elite’s high definition displays are archived for future use, providing physicians with a powerful means of further analysis. Additionally, unlike other imaging devices, the SPY Elite does not involve ionizing radiation and does not require use of radiation protective gear.
Placed at most of the top health centers in the US, SPY Elite has been used extensively in independent clinical studies, bringing great contributions to the medical community in the improvement of surgical outcomes and in reducing health care costs which translates into improvements in patient’s lives.
SPY imaging is cleared by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use during a variety of applications including coronary artery bypass, cardiovascular, plastic, reconstructive, micro, organ transplant and gastrointestinal surgery.
