Developing the Case for Hyperspectral Imaging in Surgical Practice


Hyperspectral cameras reveal much more information about an object’s physical properties than can be discerned with the naked eye.

In the medical domain, they can also make for a revolution. Yet, several limitations prevent the technology from straightforwardly being used in surgical practice.

A recent research project investigated whether hyperspectral imaging technology can support the in vivo detection of low-grade gliomas (a diverse group of slow-growing brain tumors)
