Ra-Sure

Raman spectroscopy guided tumour surgery

The consortium will develop a fully automated Raman spectroscopic device to help surgeons achieve complete tumour removal in oral cavity cancer surgeries. The device will inspect removed tissue to check if the tumour has been removed with a sufficient boundary of healthy tissue. This is done within 15 minutes, while the patient is still in the operating room. The device will inform the surgeon where extra tissue should be removed to achieve complete tumour removal.
