Increased brain tumor resection using fluorescence image guidance in a preclinical model.


BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Fluorescence image-guided brain tumor resection is thought to assist neurosurgeons by visualizing those tumor margins that merge imperceptibly into normal brain tissue and, hence, are difficult to identify. We compared resection completeness and residual tumor, determined by histopathology, after white light resection (WLR) using… (More)
