Putting Numbers to Fluorescent Guided Surgery
- 256 Downloads
Development of fluorescence standards may help improve the comparison between near-infrared fluorescence imaging devices, especially if they become commercially available. As translation of optical imaging for oncologic resections puts these techniques into the hands of more surgeons and operating personnel, improving the ability to compare results between devices and the simplicity of the device will be critical to improve adoption of this technology.
