MALDI mass spectrometry imaging analysis of pituitary adenomas for near-real-time tumor delineation

In September’s featured publication, Dr. Nathalie Agar and colleagues show how mass spectrometry imaging can be used to detect pituitary tumors during surgery.  This technology may allow surgeons to characterize between the tumor and healthy tissue border in 30 minutes or less, and can be applied for near-real-time detection and surgical decision-making.
