The innovation of the radio-guided surgery exploiting β- emitters is the higher tumor-to-non-tumor ratio (TNR) allowing both a smaller radiopharmaceutical absorbed dose to detect cancerous remnants and the possibility of extending the technique also to cases with a large uptake of surrounding healthy organs, as for brain tumors. Our first study cases are… CONTINUE READING
