Fluorescence cholangiography provides a roadmap for safe dissection during laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Optimization of the technique is dependent upon timing of indocyanine green (ICG) administration, system settings, usage in the OR, and characteristics of the gallbladder that is being observed. We present our experience of 104 cases and the information we have yielded from them and advocate for the use of fluorescence cholangiography on every laparoscopic cholecystectomy.
