New Optical Tool to Spot Nerves During Surgery

A team of medical researchers has come up with a way to optically spot nerves within tissue, which should prevent nerve injuries that can happen during surgeries of the hand and other sensitive and delicate parts of the body. The technology uses something called collimated polarized light imaging (CPLi) and by rotating the polarization, one is […]
