Assessment of Potential Use of Indocyanine Green as a Fluorescent Agent for Definition of Surgical Margins in Cancer
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment
The contrast ratio (CR, defined as the integrated fluorescence intensity measured in a known tumor area divided by the integrated fluorescence intensity of a known "not tumor" area)
Examine the resected tissue to determine whether ICG is sensitive to tumor detection (i.e., whether ICG accumulates in tumor) and whether ICG is specific for tumor (i.e., whether ICG accumulates in normal tissue).
