Las investigaciones han demostrado que el índice de supervivencia o de curación de los tumores cerebrales depende, en buena medida, de la extirpación total del tumor. Esto resulta complejo en el caso de tumores cerebrales malignos debido a su forma difusa que dificulta su diferenciación del tejido cerebral sano. En la Clínica Universidad de Navarra se realiza la cirugía de extirpación de tumores cerebrales malignos con un microscopio fluorescente  que, a través de una sustancia inocua para el paciente, puede  identificar completamente la zona tumoral y diferenciarla de la zona  sana, consiguiendo una extirpación total del tumor en el 83% de los  casos, frente al 30% que se lograba anteriormente.
