SPY Elite

Fluorescence imaging system

SPY Elite Fluorescence Imaging enables surgeons performing open procedures, such as breast and other reconstruction, gastrointestinal and cardiothoracic surgery, to visualize microvascular blood flow and perfusion in tissue intraoperatively.

Assess perfusion when it matters most


  • Intraoperative perfusion assessment: Allows surgeons to visualize perfusion intraoperatively and in real-time

  • Repeatable technique: Involves no ionizing radiation and utilizes a fluorescence imaging agent (indocyanine green) with a very short half-life, thus allowing surgeons to repeat intraoperative perfusion assessment numerous times throughout the procedure1

  • Clinical outcomes: Enhances the surgeon’s ability to assess perfusion, which may improve patient outcomes.2

Surgical complications
lead to increased
healthcare costs

Research has demonstrated that when combined with clinical judgment, use of SPY Fluorescence Imaging technology decreased the incidence of mastectomy skin necrosis and lowered costs to hospitals.2,3,4

can increase
hospital costs

Published literature has long demonstrated the significant costs associated with surgical complications.4 Total hospital charges and professional fees were $1,158,954 for the flap necrosis group and $659,412 for the adequate healing group.4 The average excess cost associated with a single case of flap necrosis group was $99,908 per patient representing $63,079 in hospital charges and $36,829 in professional fees.4
