World first- lung cancer surgery blasts tumour without puncturing skin

post-image
Surgeons at St Bartholomew?s Hospital in London used GPS-style technology to reach a tumour on a lung, without using cuts or needles, or needing to puncture the lung. After inserting a catheter through the patient?s mouth, the surgeons were able to use 3D images to guide them to the tumour and blast it with a targeted dose of microwave energy. Footage shows the tumour exploding, not unlike the target of a missile strike, or an enemy in a computer game. https://www.theaustralian.com.au/news/world/the-times/lung-cancer-surgery-blasts-tumour-without-puncturing-skin/news-story/5d9ffdc13d8bcd365ac1ceb81ca1ca05
