Book excerpt: Strategies for Curative Fluorescence-Guided Surgery of Cancer is the first book to discuss how fluorescence-guided surgery can be successfully used during surgeries with several tumor types. FGS is one of the most exciting emerging modalities of surgery, especially cancer surgery, as it potentially allows the surgeon to visualize the actual margin of the tumor, thus greatly increasing the possibility of curative resection. The book discusses the applicability of FGS for several types of cancer, such as pancreatic cancer, liver metastasis, soft-tissue sarcoma, glioma, melanoma, and breast and lung cancer. This book is a valuable resource for cancer surgeons, cancer researchers and members of several other areas in the biomedical field who are interested in understanding this powerful technique. Presents an overview of fluorescence-guided surgery Explains general strategies for curative fluorescence-guided surgery and their applicability for each major tumor type Discusses the current and future achievements of FGS as a precise technique for cancer surgeries
