In latest development for finding a cure for cancer, an Indian researcher’s work at Baltimore’s prestigious John Hopkins University has come up with a new technology to help surgeons detect and treat cancerous tumours while operating on patients.
This Indian genius, Nishikant Deshmukh claims that he has developed the world’s first 5D ultrasound system which will aid the surgeons in appropriately identifying malignant tumours, as per Indian Express reports. Deshmukh is a graduate from Pune University in Computer engineering has come up with this new technology as a part of his thesis.
“My technology can give vision to the surgeon for locating tumors while operating upon patients,” he told TAB. Deshmukh, who was inspired to work in this field due to a personal loss say in India says, “The disease could not be diagnosed at early stage,” reported TAB.
“It will help a radiologist to determine whether the abnormally grown tissue is a potentially fatal tumor, or a more benign cyst,” he added.
This technology is brand new in this league as doctors have been relying on two-dimensional technology for ultrasound for ages. While some do use advanced 3D graphics, the time taken to generate such images makes it difficult for surgeons to use it while operating.
