Intraoperative monitoring of tissue perfusion is of great importance for optimizing surgery and reducing postoperative complications. To date, there is no standard procedure for assessing blood circulation in routine clinical practice. Over the past decade, indocyanine green (ICG) fluorescence angiography is most commonly used for intraoperative perfusion evaluation. Imaging photoplethysmography (iPPG) potentially enables contactless assessment of the blood supply to organs. However, no strong evidence of this potential has been provided so far. Here we report results of a comparative assessment of tissue perfusion obtained using custom-made iPPG and commercial ICG-fluorescence systems during eight different gastrointestinal surgeries. Both systems allow mapping the blood-supply distribution over organs. It was demonstrated for the first time that the quantitative assessment of blood perfusion by iPPG is in good agreement with that obtained by ICG-fluorescence imaging in all surgical cases under study. iPPG can become an objective quantitative monitoring system for tissue perfusion in the operating room due to its simplicity, low cost and no need for any agent injections.
