Fluorescence imaging in neurosurgery has a long historical development, with several different biomarkers and biochemical agents being used, and several technological approaches. Endogenous autofluorescence, Exogenous agents that are in routine human use, Exogenous agents, with molecular targeting potential. In the use of these fluorescence biochemical probes, tumors have been visualized using different types of technologies as well, including: In vivo fluorescence microscopy; point spectroscopic tools for imaging one region at a time; modified surgical microscopes or laboratory grade stand-alone systems; commercial systems with built in fluorescence channels; combination systems which integrate fluorescence with spatial imaging.
