Raman Technique May Boost Chances of Successful Cancer Surgery
A new Raman technique that color codes cancerous and health brain cells according to their chemistry could help surgeons remove all traces of brain tumors while minimizing damage to sensitive tissues. Developed by Sunney Xie at Harvard University (Cambridge, Massachusetts) and colleagues, the technique uses stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) microscopy to detect lipids and proteins in brain tissue.
