Abstract

The investigation in this paper involves detection of cancer cells using far infrared light and formulating concept of feedback assisted surgical scalpel on the basis of the results obtained. Cancer cells and Normal cells have been distinguished on basis of their optical response to laser light in the range of far infrared wavelength. Then a unique concept of surgical scalpel involving photo detector, comparator, and piezoelectric crystal has been proposed. This kind of instrument will be very useful tool for doctors involved in cancer surgery where the surgeon actually cuts the cancerous lesions or tissue with a scalpel. The scalpel will act as a feedback instrument to the doctor assisting him in removing the diseased tissue successfully.
