Shining a light on hidden tumors
When we illuminate tumors, we brighten the odds for all cancer patients. That’s why we’re leading the way, investigating a new technique capable of making tumors glow under near-infrared cameras. We call it TumorGlow® and, in clincical trials, it enhances the visibility of undetected tumors—improving outcomes and reducing the odds of follow-up surgery. It’s a global innovation from some of the world’s most enlightened minds. And it’s one more reason why your life is worth Penn Medicine.
