Tumours are varied and complex, and a cure for cancer remains elusive. However, technology is already having a major impact on medicine and research. At Springwise we’ve seen how machine learning algorithms are assisting in Alzheimer’s diagnoses, and, more pertinently, we’ve seen AR being used to design better operating theatres. Now, scientists at Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute are taking VR technology and applying it to cancer research. To build a virtual map, scientists begin by taking a tumour biopsy from a patient. This is photographed under a microscope. Next, researchers divide the sample into wafer thin slices. They then…
