A new robot prototype can detect and kill cancer cells in one session.
A prototype robot could potentially screen, find and kill breast cancer cells in one session.
Jaydev Desai, professor at the University of Maryland, developed the prototype, which can even work inside an MRI.
The titanium and stainless steel contraption inserts a probe into the breast to locate the tumour. Cancerous cells or tumours are then burnt away. Hopefully, three months of hospital trips could be compressed into one visit. It’ll be four years before trials begin, if everything goes according to plan, and ideally not much longer before breast cancer starts to become a thing of the past.
