PINPOINT

Endoscopic fluorescence imaging

The PINPOINT Endoscopic Fluorescence Imaging System provides real-time high definition white light video and SPY Fluorescence Imaging during multiple surgical specialties.

Visualize tissue perfusion, biliary anatomy, and lymphatics in a different light.

 
PINPOINT is designed to offer simultaneous, real-time, high definition white light and fluorescence imaging through a single laparoscope. PINPOINT enables surgeons to perform routine visible light endoscopic procedures as well as further visually assess circulation including blood flow in vessels and microvessels, tissue and organ perfusion, and lymphatics and perfusion associated with tumors and tumor margins with near infrared fluorescence imaging during minimally invasive surgery.
The fluorescent imaging agent (indocyanine green) binds to proteins in blood, providing laparoscopic visualization of blood flow and tissue perfusion, and biliary anatomy.

One technology,
multiple minimally invasive applications

PINPOINT offers high-definition, white light video with the added advantage of SPY Fluorescence Imaging technology, which has been demonstrated as beneficial in a variety of surgical applications.2, 3, 5

Colon resection

Assessing tissue perfusion may assist surgeons in making informed decisions that can positively impact outcomes.3

Laparoscopic cholecystectomy

Visualising biliary ducts and the critical view of safety, may be easier with PINPOINT.4

Minimally invasive esophagectomy

During esophagectomy, PINPOINT may help surgeons evaluate the gastric conduit.5


The PINPOINT camera

 

The camera features leading-edge sensor technology and its custom optics provide for vividly colored and high contrast images across all PINPOINT display modes.

Intraoperative perfusion assessment

Allows surgeons to visualize tissue perfusion and biliary ducts intraoperatively and in real-time.

 

Increased confidence

Fluorescence imaging may assist surgeons with critical decisions during surgery.3

 

Improved outcomes

Allows surgeons to assess perfusion, which may improve patient outcomes.3

Designed to
improving outcomes

Published literature has long confirmed the significant social and economic burden associated with postoperative complications. More than 180 peer-reviewed medical journals have supported the use of SPY technology. Many of these studies have demonstrated an improvement in patient outcomes and a reduction in hospital costs as a result of SPY technology.2 For instance, the PILLAR II trial found that the use of SPY technology may assist in surgical decision making, which may reduce the occurrence of costly complications.3
