Arizona Center for Reconstructive Breast Surgery Patients To Benefit From Innovative Fluorescence Imaging Technology

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., March 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Arizona Center for Reconstructive Breast Surgery in Scottsdale announced that plastic and reconstructive surgeries may now benefit from an innovative imaging technology called the SPY Elite Fluorescence Imaging System. The use of SPY Elite may help surgeons to make critical decisions during surgery based on the quality of blood flow in vessels and micro vessels that provide oxygen to organs.  Most often called tissue perfusion or simply perfusion, adequate blood flow is critical to tissue health and the ability to visualize blood flow in real-time may assist surgeons in achieving lower rates of postoperative complications and improved surgical outcomes. The Arizona Center for Reconstructive Breast Surgery is one of the first practices in the area to implement this advancement in surgery.

The ability to visualize perfusion intra-operatively may assist surgeons in many clinical decisions including where to make an incision and/ or how much tissue to remove during an operation. Today at the Arizona Center for Reconstructive Breast Surgery, surgeons will utilize SPY Elite to see beyond what the human eye can see to help optimize patient outcomes.

SPY Elite uses a near-infrared low powered laser light source to stimulate a fluorescent imaging agent that has been injected into the blood stream. The fluorescent agent binds to the proteins in blood and circulates through the body. When stimulated by light, the agent emits a fluorescence signal of blood flowing through even the tiniest vessels and into tissue. The fluorescence is captured by a special camera and displayed on a monitor for the surgeon to review. Unlike traditional X-ray, which can be cumbersome to perform in surgery, the SPY Elite technology does not involve ionizing radiation and is considered extremely safe for patients and staff.

SPY Fluorescence technology was the first fluorescence imaging system cleared by the United States Food and Drug Administration and is cleared for use in seven different applications including coronary artery bypass graft surgery, plastic, reconstructive and micro-surgery, colorectal surgery, organ transplant, cardiovascular and minimally invasive surgery.
