Diagnostic Performance of Fluorescein as an Intraoperative Brain Tumor Biomarker: Correlation with Preoperative MR, ALA-induced PpIX Fluorescence, and Histopathology
Principal Investigator (?)
Roberts, David
Study Number
This clinical research will evaluate the diagnostic potential of fluorescein as visualized through an operating microscope relative to 1) contrast enhancement on co-registered preoperative MR scans, 2) intraoperative ALA-induced PpIX fluorescence and 3) gold-standard histology obtained from biopsy sampling during the procedure. Subjects will include those people with operable brain tumor with first-time presumed pre-surgical diagnosis of high-grade glioma or low-grade glioma.
