endo-microscope – being developed by Dr Khushi Vyas and colleagues at the college – will help surgeons identify cancerous cells a hundredth of a millimetre in size at a much faster rate than traditional methods.

It would help reduce the need for follow-up operations to remove cancerous cells that previously evaded detection, the team said.

The instrument would also help with breast-conserving surgery, where the surgeon removes the cancer while leaving as much normal breast as possible.
