Abstract

OBJECTIVE. The purpose of this study was to evaluate a new imaging technique for the assessment of breast cancer tumor margins. The technique entails deployment of a high-resolution optical imaging needle under ultrasound guidance. Assessment was performed on fresh ex vivo tissue samples. CONCLUSION. Use of the ultrasound-guided optical needle probe allowed in situ assessment of fresh tissue margins. The imaging findings corresponded to the histologic findings.
