Article on Identification of Pediatric Brain Tumors

An article on the rapid identification of pediatric brain tumors using DMS was published in Frontiers in Oncology, section Neuro-Oncology and Neurosurgical Oncology! The results show that most common pediatric brain tumor samples can be differentiated with DMS. DMS shows promise in becoming and additional instrument for real-time diagnosis of brain tumors.

(The header image for this post shows an illustration of the laser sampling unit. The system is capable of vaporizing small tissue samples, and has been used in our studies of brain tumors! Current sampling time for one sample is approximately 13 seconds.)
