Mela CA, Patterson C, Thompson WK, Papay F, Liu Y - PLoS ONE (2015)

Bottom Line: Furthermore, real time goggle-to-goggle stereoscopic video sharing is demonstrated, which can greatly facilitate telemedicine.In this paper, the prototype systems are described, characterized and tested in surgeries in biological tissues ex vivo.The system has successfully guided simulated cancer surgeries in chicken.

Goggle aided stereoscopic imaging with ultrasound.2 fluorescent targets (blue arrows) implanted into the chicken breast at depths of approximately 3 mm. Ultrasound imagery is displayed in picture-in-picture mode at the upper left of the goggle imaging frame. The ultrasound transducer (purple arrow) was capable of detecting the implanted fluorescent tube as a dark region (orange arrow), similar to a large vessel or fluid filled sac. Imaging was conducted with (A) and without (B) unfiltered NIR illumination.

pone.0141956.g004: Goggle aided stereoscopic imaging with ultrasound.2 fluorescent targets (blue arrows) implanted into the chicken breast at depths of approximately 3 mm. Ultrasound imagery is displayed in picture-in-picture mode at the upper left of the goggle imaging frame. The ultrasound transducer (purple arrow) was capable of detecting the implanted fluorescent tube as a dark region (orange arrow), similar to a large vessel or fluid filled sac. Imaging was conducted with (A) and without (B) unfiltered NIR illumination.

Mentions: The second surgical study was conducted using the goggle system integrated with ultrasound, displayed onto the stereoscopic goggle frames in picture-in-picture mode (Fig 4). The chicken was illuminated with and without unfiltered NIR light. Fluorescent targets were clearly visible above the background in the large FOV images under both lighting conditions; averaged (n = 6) SBR was 442 ±21 without unfiltered NIR light and 5.4 ±0.12 with the unfiltered NIR light, respectively. Ultrasound was able to detect the implanted fluorescent tube which appeared as a hypoechoic dark, elongated object simulating a large blood vessel or fluid filled sac. The ultrasound images provide information complementary to fluorescence images. The depth penetration of ultrasound imaging is also desirable for deeper tissue assessment, reported by the surgeon.
