FutureSurgery – Alternative Visualization- Part2 Infrared

Continuing in the series of the future of surgery (see intro to series here).  I previously posted about veinviewer.  This is the camera system that uses infrared light to see the veins under the skin.  I wanted to post this video I made of the system being used at Nextfest to demonstrate how it works – and to provide an example of “alternate visualization”.  The real exciting possibilites to me are in using this type of technology inside body cavities to see otherwise invisible deep structures or disease.
