Optical spectral imaging for breast margin assessment: A comprehensive assessment of sources of contrast


Journal Article

Achieving tumor-free surgical margins is desired to avoid recurrence. Diffuse reflectance imaging can assess margin status; however, understanding tissue kinetics, cautery, and patient variability is necessary to exploit optical contrast to detect positive tumor margins. © OSA 2012.
