In around 20% of lumpectomy cases there is cancer at, or near, the edge of the lump. This increases the risk of breast cancer returning in the remaining breast tissue.
Our research aims to use Raman Spectroscopy to help surgeons remove all breast cancer by testing the edges of lumpectomy samples during surgery.
