Indocyanine green can be used as a fluorescent agent by means the near-infrared light (NIR) technique to visualize blood flow and related tissue perfusion.

This video shows a robotic resection of a liver hemangioma located in segment II.

With the fluorescent imaging we can determine more precisely the limits of the hemangioma tumor, by identifying present perilesional satellitosis, due to the vascular pattern of this lesion and its blood wash-out.
