New imaging technology to help save brain cells during cancer surgery

Researchers from FET-Open project HELiCoiD have developed hyper-spectral imaging technologies which can help to distinguish more accurately between healthy tissue and that affected by tumour. The prototype hyper-spectral camera has been tested during brain cancer surgery at Negrn Hospital Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, in Spain. This non-invasive technology using hyper-spectral cameras can provide more detailed information compared to conventional imaging, allowing real-time identification of healthy and affected tissue during brain surgery.
