Cancer-Spotting Goggles Help Surgeons Remove Diseased Cells


Innovator: Samuel Achilefu  
Age: 51 
Professor of radiology and biomedical engineering at Washington University in St. Louis.

Form and function: When surgeons remove a tumor, diseased tissues can be difficult to distinguish from healthy ones. A fluorescent marker and special goggles make cancer cells appear to glow under infrared light, so surgeons have an easier time excising them.
