Surgical imaging describes the application of a range of imaging, vision and optical techniques to assist surgeons for intrasurgical decision making. In this talk I will describe how various biophotonics and optical imaging approaches may be adapted for surgical endoscopic application, including the use of multispectral imaging, polarization resolved imaging and fluorescence. Furthermore, the integration of these approaches with existing and new robotic platforms will be described, allowing improved ergonomics as well as better mechanical scanning of optical spectroscopic probes for more accurate optical diagnostics. A new approach for endoscopic structured lighting has also been developed for the detection of tissue surface curvatures during surgery. This work is driven by the need to provide a higher degree of control and vision for the surgeon, and to complement the standard white light reflection images.
