BRINGING SURGERY TO THE 21ST CENTURY: REAL-TIME TISSUE ANALYSIS DURING CANCER SURGERY. Improving Patient Safety, Quality and Cost-Effectiveness

Project description

Delivering safe, affordable and timely cancer surgery

Surgery is an important treatment option in cancer care. Unfortunately, often, preoperative examination appears inadequate, resulting globally in 10-60 % incomplete removals of tumour tissue and necessitating repeat operations. This leads to an immense burden on quality of life of patients and enormous additional treatment costs. The solution proposed by the EU-funded Olfactomics Surgery project is an innovative, non-invasive, real-time device enabling analysis of surgical smoke during surgery and facilitating optimal, accurate cancer-occupied tissue removal. The Olfactomics device will be launched for commercialisation and scaled-up, first for breast cancer and then other surgical areas.
