Chapter 3 A B C Figure 3.2 A. WL image (left) and fluorescence image (right) at first NIRFC of the liver hilum. Images 44 recorded directly after initial exposure of the liver hilum. The liver and extra‐hepatic bile ducts are illuminated bright blue; B. WL image (left) and NIRFC image (right) during dissection of Calot’s triangle. Note the parallel junction between the cystic duct (continuous arrow) and the common hepatic duct (interrupted arrow) in the fluorescence image. The liver remains illuminated as well; C. WL image (left) and NIRFC image (right) in a later stage of dissection of Calot’s triangle. The fluorescence image confirms the divergent course of the two separate bile ducts as already identified in an earlier stage (Figure 3.2B). The liver remains illuminated.
