Hyperspectral Imaging: Microsurgery’s Next Big Thing

Hyperspectral imaging for microsurgery


The idea of using hyperspectral cameras in surgical practice is not new – but several issues have prevented the technology from being integrated into hospitals’ workflows.

Imec’s hyperspectral cameras come in the form of robust, yet compact, devices. And since they build on the same process used to create microchips, they are mass-manufacturable, cost-efficient, and highly customizable.

Research shows that the technology can be leveraged for the in vivo identification of low-grade gliomas.
