Light-Sheet Microscopy Method Improves Cancer Diagnostics

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
A microscopy technique developed by researchers at TU Wien (Austria) in collaboration with TU Munich could lead to more reliable cancer diagnostics. The technique allows a tumor to be analyzed after surgery in 3D without cutting the tumor into sections. Previous methods for assessing the success of cancer surgery required pathologists to cut very thin sections, approximately 4 µm thick every 5 mm. These samples were then analyzed under a microscope to determine the presence or absence of cancer cells. That method examines only a very small amount of the tumor. A chemically...Read full article
