3D image-guided surgery
is faster and more accurate and uses less X-rays than conventional fluoroscopy-guided surgery.
Briefly, a series of nanoparticles with varying concentration of HA-Cy7.5 were prepared and characterized using a UV-Vis spectrophotometer (Thermo Fisher Scientific; Waltham, MA), a Fluoromax fluorometer (Horiba; Kyoto, Japan), a Pearl Trilogy Small Animal Imaging System (LI-COR; Lincoln, NE), and a custom-made fluorescence image-guided surgery
system (FIGSS), previously described elsewhere [21, 22].
"While image-guided surgery
is well-established, robot-assisted surgery has been slow to gain acceptance in Western Europe owing to large initial investments and lower reimbursement values," Frost & Sullivan Healthcare Industry Analyst Beulah Devadason noted.
When the entire system is complete, it will enable remote-controlled, image-guided surgery
in minimally invasive settings, and will be readily integrated into robotic and tele-surgery platforms.

Along with increases in breast screening due to initiatives such as age extension in the United Kingdom, there will be an increase in image-guided surgery
and percutaneous excision, for example, by ultrasound-guided vacuum-assisted biopsy and excision.
(IGS) is used for difficult revision procedures and/or when surgical landmarks are absent.
A section on surgery covers perioperative management, image-guided surgery
, functional mapping, and complication.
Ongoing developments in such areas as image-guided surgery
, endoscopy, orthopedic joint replacement technology, graft substitutes, and robotic procedures have created a high demand for programs that help surgeons improve their skills and repertoire of techniques.
