VTT Verified as an Efficient Model in Fluorescence-Guided Surgical Training (June 2022)
On June 17~18, 2022, Dr. Naoki Nishio, Department of Otolaryngology and Head and Neck Surgery, Nagoya University School of Medicine, presented research on the VTT titled “Development of a New Tumor Resection Training Model Guided by Near-Infrared Light”. This research was presented during the 46th Japanese Society of Head and Neck Cancer held in Nara, Japan.
Fluorescence-guided surgery is a technique that uses ICG dye to “illuminate” specific targets in the surgical field, such as blood vessels or cancerous tissue. Dr. Nishio worked with us to develop a specific VTT model for his research.
Due to the increased accuracy this surgical technique provides, it may be useful not only for physicians but also for the development of new medical products such as endoscopes equipped with near-infrared light cameras. We are excited to offer VTT models in the future that will aid medical professionals in honing their skills with fluourescence-guided surgery.
