Can a Pen Be the Next Big Diagnostic Tool for Breast Cancer?

This new tool has an extremely promising future

For any tool in the medical field, maintaining a consistent average of 95% is unheard of. Once this tool is implemented in the medical industry, it will become a staple among surgeons and a must have in every cancer removal operation. As far as the future is concerned, studies are currently being done on both brain and pancreatic cancers, two of the most lethal forms of cancer to date. Being able to identify the type of brain cancer a patient has will be incredibly important in establishing an effective treatment focused on the specific form of cancer. An unfortunate oddity among brain cancer patients is, after the initial diagnosis and operation, the cancer then has to be reclassified based on the way the cancer responds to treatment.
