Optical Surgical Navigation (OSN/ASIGS) Interest Group

OSN-ASIGS-slim-landing-page-banner

We envision molecular optical imaging instruments, pharmaceuticals, tissue dyes and methods of increasing capability, safety and efficiency leading to the use of Intra-Operative Optical Surgical Navigation techniques during the majority of surgeries to mark and visualize tissues, cells, and biochemical events in real time.  The directions are currently in improved instrumentation, topical and pharmaceutical markers, ancillary equipment and expanding indications.

WMIS invites you to find your place to grow, collaborate and make a difference – join the OSN/ASIGS Interest Group today.

Members: Interest Groups are open to current WMIS Members. If you are a WMIS member click the link below to join one of the WMIS Interest Groups. There is an annual Interest Group membership fee of $20 which is requested to help offset administrative costs.
