Imaging system helps surgeons remove tiny ovarian tumors

Researchers have developed a way to improve the accuracy of surgery to remove ovarian tumors. Using carbon nanotubes and a near-infrared imaging system, they could find and remove tumors as small as 0.3 millimeters during surgery in mice, resulting in a 40 percent enhancement in median survival.
