Abstract
Fluorescence-guidance is a useful adjunct to maximize brain tumor resection but current commercial systems are limited by subjective assessment of fluorescence, low sensitivity and non-spectrally-resolved detection. We present a quantitative, spectrally-resolved system integrated onto a commercial neurosurgical microscope that performs spectrallyresolved detection and corrects for effects of tissue optical absorption and scattering on the detected fluorescence signal to image the true fluorophore concentration. Pre-clinical studies in rodent glioma models using multiple fluorophores (PpIX, fluorescein) and clinical studies demonstrate improved residual tumor tissue detection. This quantitative, spectrally-resolved technique opens the door to simultaneous image-guided surgery of multiple fluorophores in the visible and near infrared.
