Eligibility for the Clinical Trial

Are You a Candidate?

Though intraoperative molecular imaging has already shown positive results for cancer patients enrolled in the clinical trials, this technology is still investigational and may not be right for every patient. 

To find out if you are a qualified candidate, discuss the following eligibility criteria with your doctor or speak with a Penn clinical trial navigator (available 9 am to 5 pm EST, Monday through Friday).

Currently, we are accepting patients for intraoperative molecular imaging clinical trials with the following cancer types:

To be considered for the trial, you must:

  • Be over 18 years of age
  • Have a solid tumor presumed to be resectable cancer and are at risk for local recurrence on pre-operative assessment 
  • Be a good operative candidate as determined by the treating physician and multidisciplinary team
  • Be capable of giving informed consent and participating in the process of consent

You may not be accepted if you:

  • Are pregnant, as determined by urinary or serum beta hCG within 72 hours of surgery 
  • Have a history of iodide allergies 
  • Are part of a vulnerable population (i.e., someone who could be easily lost to follow-up or are unable to participate in the consent process)
