Microscopic lymph node tumor burden quantified by macroscopic dual-tracer molecular imaging


Lymph node biopsy is employed in many cancer surgeries to identify metastatic disease and to determine cancer stage, yet morbidity and diagnostic delays associated with lymph node biopsy could be avoided if noninvasive imaging of nodal involvement were reliable. Molecular imaging has potential in this regard; however, variable delivery and nonspecific… (More)
