A new procedure for noninvasive detection of breast cancer lymph node metastasisdit tafreshi Document Transcript

  • 1. Editoriale Page 1 of 1 A new procedure for noninvasive detection of breast cancer lymph node metastasis Using two cell surface markers found to be highly expressed in breast cancer lymph node metastases, our team, which included colleagues at University of Florida and Arizona, developed targeted, fluorescent molecular imaging probes that can non-invasively detect breast cancer lymph node metastases. The new procedure could spare breast cancer patients invasive and unreliable sentinel lymph node biopsies and surgery-associated negative side effects.
