Smart Laparoscopes for Oncologic surgery

During cancer surgery, the surgeon often cannot see the tumor boundaries. As a result, in 20-30% of the cases the tumor is not removed completely or healthy tissue is damaged leading to long-lasting complications. We will develop a smart hyperspectral laparoscope that visualizes tumor tissue in real-time during surgery.
