Overview of Cancer Detection and Monitoring Strategies

  • Kurt R. Zinn


There is tremendous potential for patients to benefit from recent advances in optical technologies and molecular imaging approaches. While these clinical applications are just beginning, the data from preclinical studies indicate significant improvements in early detection of cancerous growth and metastasis by various optical-based techniques.
