OT- DUNE Medical Devices Cancer detection using Radio-Frequency Spectroscopy
Our scientists created a priority technology called Radio-Frequency (RF) Spectroscopy to identify cancerous tissue in real time, enabling immediate reaction by the physician during the procedure.
Our technology utilizes RF electrical fields, similar to the frequency range of FM radio, to identify microscopic residual cancerous lesions at the area of tissue being examined.
The technology is based on two main principles:
Reflection of electromagnetic fields depends on the underlying electrical properties of the tissue they interact with
Electrical properties of cancerous tissue are different from those of normal tissue
It is also important to understand that tissue is complex, with various components of the tissue contributing to its electrical properties. Any change in a cell’s physiological state will be reflected in its electrical response. (see photo below) Our technology can capture these changes and provide immediate feedback to physicians if tissue is malignant or benign.
