In New York, a follow-up to a 2009 study done by California researchers demonstrated that Cerenkov luminescence imaging of breast cancer cells radiolabeled with the drug trastuzumab can be used to guide resection of the tumor and visualize the difference between HER2-positive and HER2-negative breast cancer cells.
