Evaluation of a polarization-enhanced laparoscopy prototype for improved intra-operative visualization of peritoneal metastases

Gnanatheepam, Einstein

2023

Description
  • Despite careful staging, the accuracy for preoperative detection of small distant metastases remains poor, creating a clinical need for enhanced operative staging to detect occult peritoneal metastases. This study evaluates a polarization-enhanced laparoscopy (PEL) prototype and assesses its potential for label-free contrast enhancement of peritoneal metastases. This is a first-in-human feasibility ... read more
