New Laser-based Tool May Improve Accuracy Of Brain Tumor Surgery
2013-09-05 09:00:43

Harvard University In the battle against brain cancer, doctors now have a new weapon -- a new imaging technology that will make brain surgery dramatically more accurate by allowing surgeons to distinguish -- at a microscopic level -- between brain tissue and tumors. Called SRS microscopy -- short for stimulated Raman scattering -- a team of researchers that included Xiaoliang Sunney Xie, the Mallinckrodt Professor of Chemistry and Chemical Biology and Minbiao Ji, a Post-Doctoral Fellow...

Two lasers are better than one in a new technique called label-free stimulated Raman scattering microscopy that allows researchers at Baylor College of Medicine and Harvard University to identify the genes that regulate fat storage in the body. In a report in a recent issue of the journal Nature Methods, Dr. Meng C. Wang, assistant professor in the Huffington Center on Aging at BCM, and collaborators at Harvard University and Harvard Medical School used this new technique to identify eight...

Harvard scientists push SRS microscopy to new levels of spatial, temporal precisionA novel type of biomedical imaging, made possible by new advances in microscopy from scientists at Harvard University, is so fast and sensitive it can capture "video" of blood cells squeezing through capillaries.Researchers led by Harvard's Brian G. Saar, Christian W. Freudiger, and X. Sunney Xie describe the work this week in the journal Science.The new technique, based on stimulated Raman scattering (SRS),...

A team of Harvard chemists led by X. Sunney Xie has developed a new microscopic technique for seeing, in color, molecules with undetectable fluorescence. The room-temperature technique allows researchers to identify previously unseen molecules in living organisms and offers broad applications in biomedical imaging and research. The scientists' results are published in the Oct. 22 issue of Nature. Partial funding for the project was provided by the National Science Foundation (NSF)....
