Sensitivity And Specificity Of Indocyanine Green Near-Infrared Fluorescence Imaging In Detection Of Metastatic Lymph Nodes In Colorectal Cancer: Systematic Review And Meta-Analysis

Abstract This review aimed to determine the overall sensitivity and specificity of indocyanine green (ICG) near-infrared (NIR) fluorescence in sentinel lymph node (SLN) detection in Colorectal cancer (CRC). A systematic search in electronic databases was conducted. Twelve studies including 248 patients were reviewed. The median sensitivity, specificity, and accuracy rates were 73.7, 100, and 75.7.…
