Experimental eyeglasses that seem to improve a doctor’s ability to see cancer cells during surgery may help reduce cancer patients’ need for follow-up operations, according to a new study.
The researchers said that cancer cells can be extremely hard to see, even under high-powered magnification. When viewed through this new high-tech eyewear, cancer cells glow blue and are apparently easier to distinguish from healthy cells. This means stray tumors are less likely to be left behind after surgery, the researchers said. Full Story
