This is absolutely amazing! Normally surgeons like to leave a nice margin when they are removing a cancerous area to ensure all cancer cells have been removed. This involves waiting (while the patient is still under) to have pathology look at the cell samples and report back: cancerous or not cancerous? With this "iKnife" it sniffs the smoke created by the cauterized area and says whether it is cancerous or not. How about that!?
