Intelligent Knife Detects Cancer

By: Steve Wylde

The Intelligent Knife works by heating the tissue needed to be cut away with an electrical current with a minimum of blood loss. The knife is attached to a machine that analyzes the smoke that comes off the burning tissue using a mass spectrometer that can identify the presence of cancerous cells.

What’s most important is that it can detect cancerous cells that the surgeon typically could not have seen and be able to detect and remove cancerous cells that would have normally been left behind. This could change the future of cancer surgeries allowing surgeons to be able to save more lives who are undergoing cancer treatment than with current methods.
