Recently, a fluorescent imaging technique using indocyanine green (ICG) came to be applied to laparoscopic hepatobiliary surgery, as laparoscopic near-infrared imaging systems became commercially available in 2011. Herein, we present applications of ICG-fluorescent imaging to identification of hepatocellular carcinoma during liver resection and delineation of a boundary between fluorescing liver parenchyma and non-fluorescing subserosa of the gallbladder facilitating full-thickness cholecystectomy for potentially malignant lesions.
