9 March 2020 Performance measures for fluorescence guided surgery systems (Conference Presentation)
Author Affiliations +
The AAPM sanctioned a task group to study performance metrics for fluorescence guided surgery systems, with the goal of establishing professional guidance documentation which would initiate future efforts in standardization and ultimately a more standardized approach to this field. While tissue phantoms and test targets are widely used in radiology, the field of surgical guidance has not had any clear consensus around the idea of quantifying performance goals. The field is largely driven by manufacturers stating performance goals and training surgical users. There has been little interchangeability between systems, yet the field is now quite crowded with possible systems to use for indocyanine green imaging. The task group studied the problem and has converged towards a set of ideal goals and recommendations.
