Fluorescence imaging during standard excision and Mohs micrographic surgery
Figure 1: Fluorescence imaging during standard excision and Mohs micrographic surgery. A) Fluorescence imaging before standard excision of a temporal, s ub d e rma l tumo r that was earlier irradically removed. Ex vivo imaging of the specimen showed a fluorescent lesion at the deep resection ma rgin, c o rre la tin g with a tumo r-positive margin on histopatholo gy (red arrows). B) Fluorescence ima gin g during a MMS procedure. In vivo imaging shows a sharply demarcated fluorescent le s io n. Ex vivo imaging shows a fluorescent lesion at the deep resection margin, whic h co -lo c a lises with tumor on H&E histopatho lo gy. The second MMS round did not show any re ma inin g fluorescence signal, and no tumor was found on histopatho lo gy. Abbreviatio ns : H&E; Haematoxylin and Eosin, MMS; Mohs Micrograp h ic Surgery.
