Joint submission Sarah Foster (medstro.com/profiles/sarah-fos...) and Ajay Kohli
Few moments can be tougher than receiving a diagnosis of cancer. As clinicians, we want to do everything that we can for our patients in these challenging times. We propose the use of Wearable Technology in the transformation of cancer care.
Intra-operative tumor staging and grading remains the basis of cancer treatment. The histological diagnosis remains paramount to patient care, prognosis and outcome. Wearable technology, like Google Glass, with our innovative application, will enhance collaboration between surgeons and pathologists and provide real time analytics. Sophisticated technology has already been incorporated in state-of-the-art operating rooms whereby surgeons can communicate freely with pathologists. However, our platform can do this at a fraction of the cost.
A pilot study will be started at Hahnemann Hospital in association with Drexel University College of Medicine.
