An Affiliate Scientist at Nova Scotia Health and a Professor in Dalhousie University’s Faculty of Engineering, Dr. Jeremy Brown is developing the next generation of ultrasound imaging and therapeutic technologies. Working alongside a team of neurosurgeons, he has created a cutting-edge device aimed at improving cancer patient outcomes using minimally invasive surgical techniques. The tiny device, which measures 3mm x 3mm, is the world’s first high-resolution endoscopic surgical and imaging probe. It combines two different technologies; an ultrafast imaging platform which will allow surgeons to detect and reach brain tumours, and a therapeutic tool that will non-invasively vaporize tissues.
