Molecular typing of Meningiomas by Desorption Electrospray Ionization Mass Spectrometry Imaging for Surgical Decision-Making
In May’s featured publication, Dr. Agar and colleagues developed tools using mass spectrometry to be used to characterize meningioma tumor from healthy brain tissue during surgery. These tools could therefore enable surgeons to detect the borders of the tumor better, and remove only the tumor tissue, leaving the healthy brain tissue behind. These developments could be extended to other brain tumor types in the future, improving surgical procedures.
