    After intravenous injection indocyanine green binds almost completely to the plasma proteins and may be detected in the skin capillaries by an infrared sensitive fluorescence videomicroscopy system. The technique opens a way to measure full capillary diameter and dimension of the plasma layer in an almost atraumatic way.
