Imaging of endogenous contrast for in situ ovarian diagnosis

Urs Utzinger, Molly Brewer, Rebekah Drezek

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Ovarian cancer has the highest mortality of all gynecologic cancers. Patients at high risk need technologies available that can detect early malignant changes. Optical techniques, possibly in conjunction with proteomic analyses of blood serum, will play an important role in the screening of high risk patients as well as diagnostic confirmation during surgical interventions.
