Media is any form of research output that is recorded and played. This is most commonly video, but can be audio or 3D representations.
The use of near-infrared imaging after systemic injection of indocyanine green (ICG) is becoming the method of choice for marking the intersegmental plane during video-assisted segmentectomies. The authors present a short video showing a suspected failure of ICG during a thoracoscopic basilar segmentectomy. A thorough examination of the three-dimensional modelization demonstrated that this was not a failure of the ICG but rather an anatomic variation that had not been previously appreciated.
