By targeting fluorescent chemicals with antibodies to tumors,

it is not so easy that a tumor can escape from a surgeons eyes.

There are some videos and communications about this tech on internet.

Hi Emad,

They use antibodies like cd44 which most cancer expresses.As far as i search,they cannot escape from surgeon.

They do biopsy to tumors after surgery and find some of them are not cancer but very less.

It is not seen by naked eye only by special filters and technology.

After normal surgery finishes ,when the filter is on they saw  they miss lots of tumors.

And it is not finished,they use photodynamic therapy during surgery so micrometastasis also gone.

Great Technology.
