Role of Optical Imaging in Differentiating Cancerous From Benign Kidney Tumors

Dr. Li-Ming Su is interested in pursuing further studies using fiberoptic confocal laser endomicroscopy (CLE) to further his preliminary findings that this technology may serve as an optical “biopsy” in replacement for more invasive needle biopsies to differentiate cancerous from benign kidney tumors. CLE provides a real time, high resolution image generated by a tiny laser probe when in contact with the kidney tumor.

Need: funding to support study and purchase equipment

Involved Faculty:  Li-Ming Su, MD
