Veterinary Highlights: Cancer Goggles
A contrasting agent, injected before the surgical procedure, stains the affected tissue making it glow under infrared light projected from the goggles.
While this technology is still in the development stage, it sounds seriously cool.
The goggles will be tested by researchers at the Missouri University veterinary school on dogs.
Clinical tests in dogs should begin soon.
