    An Australian invention aimed at improving the accuracy of breast cancer surgery is a step closer to being launched on the global market after securing funding for medical trials. About a quarter of breast cancer patients currently require two rounds of surgery because surgeons, working mostly by touch, are unable to detect microscopic tumours during the first operation. A hand-held imaging probe developed by biomedical engineers at the University of Western Australia will be able to identify those tumours in real-time during the first surgery.
