Strategies for Curative Fluorescence Guided Surgery of Cancer Excerpt :

Strategies for Curative Fluorescence-Guided Surgery of Cancer is the first book to discuss how fluorescence-guided surgery can be successfully used during surgeries with several tumor types. FGS is one of the most exciting emerging modalities of surgery, especially cancer surgery, as it potentially allows the surgeon to visualize the actual margin of the tumor, thus greatly increasing the possibility of curative resection. The book discusses the applicability of FGS for several types of cancer, such as pancreatic cancer, liver metastasis, soft-tissue sarcoma, glioma, melanoma, and breast and lung cancer. This book is a valuable resource for cancer surgeons, cancer researchers and members of several other areas in the biomedical field who are interested in understanding this powerful technique. Presents an overview of fluorescence-guided surgery Explains general strategies for curative fluorescence-guided surgery and their applicability for each major tumor type Discusses the current and future achievements of FGS as a precise technique for cancer surgeries

Molecular Probes for Pancreatic Cancer Imaging Excerpt :

Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) has the poorest five-year survival rate of any cancer. Currently, there are no effective diagnostics or chemotherapeutics. Surgical resection is the only curative therapy. However, most patients experience recurrence due largely to challenges in assessing tumor margin status in the operating room. Molecular probes that selectively highlight pancreatic cancer tissue, having the potential to improve PDAC margin assessment intraoperatively, are urgently needed. In this work, a series of red and near-infrared fluorescent probes is reported. Two were found to distribute to normal pancreas following systemic administration. One selectively accumulates in genetically modified mouse models of PDAC, providing cancer-specific fluorescence. In contrast to the small molecule probes reported previously, it possesses inherent affinity for PDAC cells and tissue, and thus does not require conjugation to targeting agents. Moreover, the probe exhibits intracellular accumulation and enables visualization of four levels of structure including the whole organ, tissue, individual cells and subcellular organelles. It can thus promote new strategies for precision image-guided surgery, pancreatic cancer detection, the monitoring of therapeutic outcomes and basic research.

This monograph equips clinicians with the knowledge required to detect oral cancer at the earliest possible stage while simultaneously inspiring researchers to work on novel methods of detection. All the methods employed in the oral cancer context are considered, from simple ones like oral screening to more complex emerging optical methods and biomarker identification strategies. Individual chapters focus on conventional oral screening and application of vital stains, optical methods like white light based fluorescence-reflectance imaging, narrow band imaging, direct-oral-microscopy, and more advanced methods like optical coherence tomography, an in-vivo optical biopsy technique, and photo-acoustic imaging that allows visualization of deeper tissue changes. Novel electrical methods like bio-impedance assessment, occult biophysical methods like crystallization test, and the most promising salivary biomarkers and point-of-care opportunities are covered. Helpful information is also provided on essential topics including, oral potentially malignant disorders, biological aspects and molecular mechanisms underlying oral cancer progression, global epidemiology, concept of diagnostic delays, traditional imaging, and classic histopathology and microscopic features. The newer techniques are currently of active research interest, and can soon become powerful chair-side tools with potential to reduce diagnostic delays and improve survival.

Video Atlas of Intraoperative Applications of Near Infrared Fluorescence Imaging Excerpt :

​This book represents a head-to-toe guide for clinicians who are interested in applying real-time near infrared (NIR) imaging for their patients. Expert surgeons from around the globe share their experience with NIR imaging, most commonly performed using indocyanine green (ICG) fluorescence. The chapters are structured to include a brief background, indications for use, followed by a technical description of the procedure. Each chapter is also accompanied by video examples and detailed information about necessary equipment, drug dosing, and alternative techniques. A pitfalls section serves as a “lessons learned” segment to bookend each chapter. Authors represent a comprehensive list of surgical subspecialties ranging from neurosurgery to plastic surgery. While it is not meant to serve as an exhaustive summary of ICG use in surgery, the goal is to highlight the successful use of this technology in a number of settings. As the technology and applications continue to expand, Video Atlas of Intraoperative Applications of Near Infrared Fluorescence Imaging serves as a foundation upon which to build.

Intraoperative Imaging Excerpt :

Intraoperative imaging technologies have taken an ever-increasing role in the daily practice of neurosurgeons and the increasing attention and interest necessitated international interaction and collaboration. The Intraoperative Imaging Society was formed in 2007. This book brings together highlights from the second meeting of the Intraoperative Imaging Society, which took place in Istanbul-Turkey from June 14 to 17, 2009. Included within the contents of the book is an overview of the emergence and development of the intraoperative imaging technology as well as a glimpse on where the technology is heading. This is followed by in detail coverage of intraoperative MRI technology and sections on intraoperative CT and ultrasonography. There are also sections on multimodality integration, intraoperative robotics and other intraoperative technologies. We believe that this book will provide an up-to date and comprehensive general overview of the current intraoperative imaging technology as well as detailed discussions on individual techniques and clinical results.
