  • Company Description
    For years, surgeons have been searching for better intraoperative tools to more effectively treat cancer. When removing tumors, the ability to precisely identify them is of paramount importance. If too little tissue is removed, cancer cells are left behind to grow and spread. If too much tissue is removed, the patient may experience significant disabilities and reduced quality of life.
