Cancer is a major threat to human health. Diagnosis and treatment using precision medicine is expected to be an effective method for preventing the initiation and progression of cancer. Although anatomical and functional imaging techniques such as radiography, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and positron emission tomography (PET)(More)
Assessment of the sentinel lymph node (SLN) in patients with early stage breast cancer is vital in selecting the appropriate surgical approach. However, the existing methods, including methylene blue and nuclides, possess low efficiency and effectiveness in mapping SLNs, and to a certain extent exert side effects during application. Indocyanine green (ICG),(More)
Advanced medical imaging technology has allowed the use of fluorescence molecular imaging-guided breast cancer surgery (FMI-guided BCS) to specifically label tumour cells and to precisely distinguish tumour margins from normal tissues intra-operatively, a major challenge in the medical field. Here, we developed a surgical navigation system for real-time(More)
Fluorescence molecular tomography (FMT) could exploit the distribution of fluorescent biomarkers that target tumors accurately and effectively, which enables noninvasive real-time 3-D visualization as well as quantitative analysis of small tumors in small animal studies in vivo. Due to the difficulties of reconstruction, continuous efforts are being made to(More)
BACKGROUNDS Radioactive tracer-based detection has been proposed as a standard procedure in identifying sentinel nodes for cN0 oral/oropharyngeal carcinoma. However, access to radioactive isotopes may be limited in some surgical centers, and there is potential risk of the radioactive tracers to the operators. This study was designed to evaluate the(More)
Tumor angiogenesis plays a key role in tumor growth and metastasis; thus, targeting tumor-associated angiogenesis is an important goal in cancer therapy. However, the efficient delivery of drugs to tumors remains a key issue in antiangiogenesis therapy. GX1, a peptide identified by phage-display technology, is a novel tumor vasculature endothelium-specific(More)
Molecular imaging enables non-invasive monitoring of tumor growth, progression, and drug treatment response, and it has become an important tool to promote biological studies in recent years. In this study, we comprehensively evaluated the in vivo anti-angiogenic and anti-neoplastic effects of Endostar on liver cancer based on the optical molecular imaging(More)
Fluorescence Molecular Tomography (FMT) is a powerful imaging modality for the research of cancer diagnosis, disease treatment and drug discovery. Via three-dimensional (3-D) imaging reconstruction, it can quantitatively and noninvasively obtain the distribution of fluorescent probes in biological tissues. Currently, photon propagation of FMT is(More)
Segmentectomy using indocyanine green (ICG) has become a primary treatment option to achieve a complete resection and preserve lung function in early-stage lung cancer. However, owing to a lack of appropriate intraoperative imaging systems, it is a huge challenge for surgeons to identify the intersegmental plane during the operation, leading to poor(More)
Tissue necrosis commonly accompanies the development of a wide range of serious diseases. Therefore, highly sensitive detection and precise boundary delineation of necrotic tissue via effective imaging techniques are crucial for clinical treatments; however, no imaging modalities have achieved satisfactory results to date. Although fluorescence molecular(More)
