Fluocancer – Macroscopic phototherapy

The objective of the programme « Fluocancer – Macroscopic phototherapy» is to develop and test equipment to transfer techniques for fluorescence imaging to the clinic, initially in big animals in perioperative situations.

This programme should allow specifically the development of a new generation of fluorescence systems adapted to human patients for perioperative imaging of targeting tracers in order to better visualize and localize the tumour limits and the tumour lesions by means of tumour fluorescence and to facilitate the resection of the tumour areas.
