    Monitoring oncological surgery using optical coherence tomography
    Detailed, real-time imaging allows for adjustment of surgical margins, thus sparing healthy tissue and increasing the likelihood of complete tumor removal. Development of local recurrence is one of the main causes of unsatisfactory long-term recovery prospects following cancer surgery. Determining the adequate balance between radical tumor removal and maximum preservation of the surrounding tissue is therefore very important for cancer management and, subsequently, the patient's quality of life. Rates of recurrence following surgical resection are appreciably high for a number of cancers. Following transurethral resection of bladder tumors (TURBT), they are reported to be as high as 40–80 ...
