Investigation of the Use of Hyperspectral Imaging in Surgery Patients.
Patients presenting to one of the investigators for surgery will be provided the opportunity to participate in this research study. After giving informed consent, hyperspectral images will be obtained at various points during their surgical procedure. As this technology is non-invasive, it is not expected to interfere with or change the procedure they are undergoing. Once the surgical procedure is complete, imaging will be saved to a disk for later evaluation. Approximately 100 patients will be recruited over a one year period to participate in this study.
Male and female patients 18 years or older undergoing surgery who can speak and read English and/or Spanish.
