New Technique Helps Doctors Remove Brain Cancer More Accurate and Rapidly
Brain cancer is the most difficult cancer to remove, as it is like a cloud where a center could be defined, but the edges are hardly discernible. In other cancers, doctors just take some non-essential tissues around the tumor as well, but this is not the case with the brain. There are no non-essential tissues.
That’s why a new technology, called SRS microscopy, is so extremely helpful to surgeons to define the tumor size. The technique has been already tried on about 360 patients at the University of Michigan Medical School and Harvard University.
Dr. Daniel Orringer, one of the researchers, says: “It makes a huge difference, the process currently in place dates back to the 1800s, and we have something disruptive, in a good way, and the implications are pretty profound.”
