Cancer services at University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire (UHCW) NHS Trust are set for a ground-breaking advancement, with major funding secured to develop technology that can detect tumours and guide robots to remove them.
The Terabotics project, which is being led by Professor Emma Pickwell-MacPherson at the University of Warwick, will use probes that use terahertz (THz) radiation, or T-rays, to scan for tumours under the skin.
