Using A Knife To Detect Cancer
A new surgical knife developed in England could help doctors detect cancer in patients.
FOX News Radio’s Ron Flatter reports:
A surgical knife being developed in England may help doctors know if they have removed all malignant cells from a cancer patient.
Dr. Roger Kneebone at Imperial College London says it creates smoke as it cuts.
(Dr. Kneebone) “The intelligent knife uses mass spectrometry to analyze the smoke that comes out of an organ when a surgeon cuts it up to tell almost instantly whether it’s benign or malignant.”
A monitor instantly shows the results, saving the time it takes to send tissues to a lab.
The developers say the knife and its hardware cost nearly $400,000, but expect the cost to drop if the technology is developed commercially.
