Stimulated Raman scattering
(SMS) microscopy for label-free imaging of tumor-infiltrated brain tissues
Mouse studies suggest SRS
microscopy could help detect tumor margins during brain cancer surgery
without using a molecular label. In mice with human glioblastoma multiforme
xenografts, SRS imaging was able to differentiate tumor tissue from normal
brain tissue ex vivo and during surgery and was comparable to
microscopy using the hematoxylin and eosin (H&E) stain. In brain samples
from patients with glioblastoma, SRS imaging results corresponded with tumor
margins identified with H&E staining. Next steps include developing a
clinical system for the technology and establishing safety and efficacy.
