    Intraoperative Imaging Techniques to Support Complete Tumor Resection in Partial Nephrectomy

    Context With more complex kidney tumors treated by nephron-sparing surgery (NSS), complete tumor resection is becoming increasingly challenging. Intraoperative imaging may improve the establishment of negative surgical margins. Objective To discuss intraoperative imaging techniques that may help achieve complete tumor resection in NSS of renal tumors. Evidence acquisition PubMed was searched for English articles on intraoperative imaging during NSS of renal cell carcinoma published after 2005, and a reference search of retrieved articles was performed. Evidence synthesis Included studies reported about ultrasonography, fluorescence imaging, augmented reality, optical coherence tomography, and ex vivo magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The number of patients ...
