FAU Study Demonstrates a Potentially Faster and More Accurate Mode of Cancer Treatment with New Laser Technology

BOCA RATON, Fla. (February 12, 2015) — Surgeons rely on 200-year-old technology when removing cancer–sight and touch–to determine how much to remove and what to leave alone. Laser technology pioneered at Florida Atlantic University has the promise to help a surgeon better determine if an area is cancer or healthy tissue. Moreover, when combined with laser treatment for cancer, this work lays the groundwork for laser robotic treatment of cancer.
