Abstract

Hyperspectral imaging (HSI) is a relatively new method used in image-guided and precision surgery, which has shown promising results for characterization of tissues and assessment of physiologic tissue parameters. Previous methods used for analysis of preconditioning concepts in patients and animal models have shown several limitations of application. The aim of this study was to evaluate HSI for the measurement of ischemic conditioning effects during esophagectomy.
