The ability of the surgeon to accurately visualize tumor margins and identify metastases is necessary for the success of any cancer operation. Fluorescence imaging, because of its high sensitivity, low cost, portability, and real-time capabilities has great potential to improve surgical outcomes. Our laboratories have pioneered the use of fluorophore-conjugated tumor-specific antibodies for detection and resection of GI cancers in orthotopic mouse models with highly improved outcomes. Thus far,...
