Currently available methods for detection of tumors such as X-ray, CT, US, and MRI have been well studied. However, a limiting factor in structural and anatomical imaging is the inability to specifically identify malignant tissues. A method for detecting Circulating Tumor cells (CTCs) simply, quickly, and highly sensitively is expected to be developed because CTCs are promising technologies for early diagnosis, prognosis, and response to therapy for cancer patients. This manuscript summarizes the current thinking on the value and issue of detection systems for CTCs.
