Imaging System Helps Surgeons Be More Thorough in Removing Tumors
A study published the AACR’s journal Clinical Cancer Research reports interesting developments in treating ovarian cancer, a difficult-to-diagnose and difficult-to-treat disease.
A team of researchers from Leiden University Medical Center in the Netherlands and Purdue University in the United States developed a tumor-specific fluorescent agent and a dedicated imaging system to detect tumors in real-time during a surgical procedure for ovarian cancer called cytoreduction. This surgical procedure, also known as “debulking” surgery, is commonly performed in advanced ovarian cancer cases in order to remove as much of the tumor as possible. The imaging system can help resect additional tumor lesions that are not visible to the surgeons’ naked eyes.
