There is a pressing clinical need to provide image guidance during surgery. Currently, assessment of tissue that needs to be resected or avoided is performed subjectively leading to a large number of failures, patient morbidity and increased healthcare cost. Because near-infrared (NIR) optical imaging is safe, does not require contact, and can provide relatively deep information (several mm), it offers unparalleled capabilities for providing image guidance during surgery. In this work, we introduce a novel concept that enables the quantitative imaging of endogenous molecular information over large fields-of-view. Because this concept can be implemented in real-time, it is amenable to provide video-rate endogenous information during surgery.
