Researchers Develop New Tool to Help Brain Surgeons in Operating Room

February 1, 2013

Distinguishing the border between normal and cancerous brain areas can often be difficult for surgeons attempting to remove tumors. But a new tool may change this, allowing more comprehensive testing of brain tissue during surgery to help surgeons quickly make the call between healthy and cancerous tissue.

So far, the tool has successfully identified the cancer type, severity and tumor margins from tissue samples of five brain surgery patients, according to a new study conducted by researchers from BWH’s departments of Neurosurgery, Radiology and Pathology, and Purdue...
