Optical techniques promise better cancer recognition: Guided by spectroscopy

Viacheslav Artyushenko, founder of art photonics GmbH, is seeking to detect tumor margins using label-free fiber spectroscopy instead of H&E stains.
Surgeons struggle to identify the border where tumors end and healthy tissue begins. His company therefore develops fiber probes to enable spectroscopic distinctions of the tumor margins during operation. ‘It’s fast and can give answers to the surgeon in real time,’ Artyushenko said.
