In this key lecture, Dr. Hyung discusses the impact of fluorescence guidance on the quality of lymphadenectomy. He provides a brief overview of the main benefits of clinical applications of NIR fluorescence imaging, e.g. better visualization of lymph nodes, seeing the invisible, assessment of LND quality and non-compliance of surgery, as well as potential oncological benefits. He also covers novel techniques and future applications of fluorescence-guided imaging where optical imaging can be used for functional imaging.
