Thus, a camera capable of detecting infrared radiation is necessary for fluorescent imaging. ICG florescence imaging becomes possible by a system in which the camera irradiates infrared radiation with a specific wavelength and detects the ICG fluorescent wavelength. The development of ICG observing systems has led to its application in other medical fields. It has been used intraoperatively for cerebral angiography in neurosurgery [5, 6], coronary angiography in heart surgery [7], neck angiography in neck surgery [8], and visualization of lymph nodes in cancer surgery [9, 10].

In the body, ICG combined with lipoprotein in the blood is transported to liver, and it is absorbed into liver cells and excreted into the bile without metabolism. ICG has been used to examine liver cell function.

In the cryptic AVM hidden in the occipital sulcus, recognition of draining vein using ICG-VAG was useful to confirm the location of nidus (Fig. 5b, c, d). After removal of AVM (Fig. 5e), the draining vein was not shown on ICG-VAG image (Fig. 5f). These findings were confirmed using intraoperative DSA (Fig. 5a, g). Faber et al. reported the usefulness of FLOW 800 in two patients with frontal or temporal AVMs [37]. They concluded that color-coded analytical ICG-VAG with FLOW 800 enabled intraoperative real-time analysis of arterial and venous vessel architecture and might increase the efficacy and safety of neurovascular surgery in a selected subset of superficial AVMs.
