For many cancers, earlier diagnosis makes treatments less heavy and increases the chances of recovery. Fluorescence diagnosis has become an important method of investigation in clinical practice. It is used to distinguish tumor tissue from healthy tissue, thanks to differences in autofluorescence of specific proteins or in distribution of a fluorescent marker between normal and cancerous lesions. Similarly, complete surgical removal of the tumor is one of the most important prognostic factors for survival of the patient. Fluorescenceguided surgery is now proposed to perform the most complete macroscopic resection of tumors while preserving healthy tissue.
