Imaging Technique Could Improve Tumor Margin Assessment

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
Use of Cerenkov luminescence imaging (CLI) could provide a more accurate technique for assessing resection margins during breast-conserving surgery, a primary treatment for early-stage breast cancer. CLI combines optical and molecular imaging by detecting light emitted by a PET radiotracer F-18-fluorodeoxyglucose (F-18-FDG). CLI’s high-resolution and small-sized imaging equipment make it a promising technology for assessing tumor margins during breast tumor surgery. This is a Cerenkov image (A); Gray-scale photographic image overlaid with Cerenkov signal (B). An increased...Read full article
