An Australian company has created a hand-held imaging probe and console to help surgeons detect small remnants of cancer tumors during surgery for breast cancer. The aim is to assist surgeons and avoid repeat surgeries due to missed cancerous areas which currently occur in about one-quarter of women who undergo a lumpectomy.
The company has been chosen from more than 800 applicants to join a US medtech accelerator program. The program gives companies the opportunity to bring their work to the next level. They hope to expand the types of cancer the device will be able to assist with and bring the device to market soon.
