The monitoring of free flaps, free transplants or organs for transplantation still poses a problem in medicine. Available systems for the measurement of perfusion and oxygenation can only perform localized measurements and usually need contact with the tissue. Contact free hyperspectral imaging and near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) for the analysis of tissue oxygenation and perfusion have been used in many scientific studies with good results. But up to now the clinical and scientific application of this technology has been hindered by the lack of hyperspectral measurement systems usable in clinical practice. We will introduce the application of a new hyperspectral camera system for the quick and robust recording of remission spectra in the combined VIS and NIR spectral range with high spectral and spatial resolution. This new system can be applied for the clinical monitoring of free flaps and organs providing high quality oxygenation and perfusion images.
