Handheld Probe Will Improve Results of Cancer Surgery
"The probe we've designed enables detection of nearly 100 percent of cancer cells in the brain. This is a very important advance. We've also been able to demonstrate the effectiveness of our technology in treating other forms of cancer. This means that more patients will benefit from better diagnosis, more effective treatment, and lower risk of recurrence." -- Dr. Frédéric Leblond
