Abstract

While extent of tumor resection is an important predictor of outcome in glioma, margin delineation remains challenging due to lack of inherent contrast between tumor and normal parenchyma. Fluorescence-guided surgery is promising for its ability to enhance contrast through exogenous fluorophores; however, the specificity and sensitivity of the underlying contrast mechanism and tumor delivery and uptake vary widely across approved and emerging agents.
