Lay Summary

Incomplete surgical resection of cancer tissues is a critical problem in the care for cancer patients, leading to devastating consequences such as recurrence, increased treatment costs, and post-operative complications. Current methods for intraoperative tissue identification and surgical margin evaluation are unreliable), time consuming, and require expert on-call pathologists for interpretation. Additionally, no current methods enable label-free real-time margin evaluation and cancer detection in vivo to guide surgical decision making. MS Pen Technologies is developing the ultimate tissue sensing system (Ultiss MD), a platform for tissue sensing and surgical guidance that combines the sim...
