Sound dangerous, doesn’t it? But it actually looks like it will save lives. Listen to what Dr James Kinross of Imperial College in London has to say in this one and a half minute long video:
After the iPod, iPhone and iPad here comes the iKnife. Love the name not least since it looks like it could be really helpful in combatting cancer. As wonderful as the other i-products are, the iKnife could be the best invention of them all. However, more research is apparently needed before widespread use. But hopefully the results continue to be positive. If so, it seems Imperial College has found a miracle cure for cancer.
Smoke detects cancer
It really is about time that there is a huge breakthrough in cancer treatment. A knife that identifies cancer cells presumably will go a long way towards saving lives. So far it has successfully been used to remove breast and bowel cancers due to smoke distinguishing between healty and sick cells. If it lives up to expectations it could even make biopsies redundant.
Do you agree with me that this could be a really innovative and fantastic product? Did you know that healthy cells and cancer cells have different smoke signatures? Will the results so far hold and help surgeons combat cancer? Could the iKnife be the breakthrough in fighting cancer that the world desperately needs? Or do you believe it will turn out to be too good to be true? Cancer has, after all, been a difficult nut to crack.
