Colour and Motion Magnification of Squamous Cell Carcinoma Surgery of the Head and Neck

Short summary

The project investigates the use of ordinary video recordings to distinguish cancer tissur from healthy tissue.


The distinction of cancer tissue is often determined by what the eye can see. Sometimes cancer tissue is left after surgery because the tissue looked healthy. Special colour characteristics can be magnified from ordinary video recordings. It has been shown that such magnification can visualize blood perfusion in skin. Since cancer has a high level of vascularisatn it is proposed that videomagnification can help find the margins of cancer tissue.

Description of the cohort

Adults with squamous cell carcinoma in skin or mucosa and patients undergoing ear-nose-throat surgery.
