Building a brighter way for capturing cancer during surgery

The research work by Dr. Baowei Fei’s Lab has been featured by AAAS and EurekAlert!. In a study published in the Sept. 14 edition of the journal Cancers, Dr. Fei and colleagues showed that hyperspectral imaging and artificial intelligence could predict the presence of cancer cells with 80% to 90% accuracy in 293 tissue specimens from 102 head and neck cancer surgery patients. Dr. Fei recently received a $1.6 million grant from the Cancer Prevention & Research Institute of Texas (CPRIT) to further develop the technology, called a smart surgical microscope.
