Novadaq Technologies Booth #2/3
Novadaq’s SPY fluorescence imaging was first introduced into cardiac surgery in the United States in 2005. Since that time Novadaq has significantly enhanced the surgeon’s ability to assess tissue perfusion in a variety of surgical procedures. Adequate tissue perfusion is essential in preventing complications that can be the result of ischemic tissue. Now, PINPOINT enables surgeons to visualize blood !ow in tissue in real-time, and therefore make more accurate, informed clinical decisions during minimally invasive surgery, that may lead to more optimal procedural results.
The PINPOINT system is intended to provide real-time HDTV endoscopic visible and SPY near infrared fluorescence imaging. PINPOINT enables surgeons to perform routine endoscopic procedures with white light as well as further visually assess vessels, blood flow and related tissue perfusion, simultaneously or on-demand with near infrared imaging.

The Top Gun Laparoscopic Skills Shoot-Out is an event that combines fun, excitement and entertainment along with competition, perseverance and SWEAT! The concept that Dr. Rosser originated at the Yale University School of Medicine is designed to provide the ultimate arena for the residents and trained surgeons from all specialties to develop and demonstrate their laparoscopic skill development while promoting friendly competition. The series of drills are validated with the acquisition of a clinically related task (intracorporeal suturing). A database of thousands of surgeons has been collected that enables the objective comparison of participants with their peers. Top Gun has been featured at the American College of Surgeons since 1996 and is now part of the AUA, AIMIS (American Institute of Minimally Invasive Surgery) SLS and SAGES as well. Come by the booth and see if you have the right stuff and discover if you are one of the "greatest MIS surgeons of all times or a legend in your own mind".
