The SPY System — assess perfusion with more confidence

Perfusion is a critical indicator of tissue health. It is crucial to the procedure's Perfusion is a critical indicator of tissue health. It is crucial to the procedure's success and the body's ability to heal. Indeed, impaired perfusion can cause irreversible damage and costly complications. Today, the most common method used to assess perfusion is clinical judgment, and yet, despite excellent techniques, perfusion-related complications still occur. Fortunately, fluorescence angiography provides clinically-relevant information and real-time imaging of tissue perfusion.

The SPY System — a window into real-time perfusion

The SPY Imaging System provides clinically relevant information that empowers surgeons to make better informed critical decisions in the operating room. SPY allows surgeons to capture, review, print and archive high-quality image sequences of blood flow in vessels and micro-vessels, tissue and organ perfusion within minutes and in real-time during the course of performing a wide variety of surgical procedures.

The SPY System —Objectively analyze tissue perfusion through relative measurements

The SPY system is easily mobile from room to room. Set up can be managed by the operating room staff. The articulating arm and camera head are controlled by the surgeon. Image capture is accomplished in less than two minutes and images can be replayed immediately for review. The SPY system allows images to be archived for future reference. The SPY system involves no ionizing radiation and therefore does not require use of radiation protective gear.

SPY® Fluorescence Imaging Technology

  • Imaging agent administered IV; binds to blood protein; circulates in vessels and perfuses tissue
  • Agent fluoresces when exposed to laser light - images are captured and displayed on devices
  • Provides accurate real-time review of perfusion and blood flow – differentiates healthy vs. disease; enables informed decisions & actions; reduces complications and costs
  • Multiple images can be captured by the physician before, during and after procedures
  • Involves no ionizing radiation exposure; no renal toxicity
