Cancer patients could live longer thanks to pioneering technology being trialed at Nottingham's hospitals.
Patients at the Queen's Medical Centre are assisting with the first trials of a "revolutionary" portable imaging device which medics say will improve surgical treatments, reduce mortality and make removing tumours easier.
The mobile gamma ray camera is the first of its kind in the world and is expected to improve the identification and removal of tumours and lymph nodes, allowing imaging procedures to take place at the patient's bedside, in operating theatres and intensive care units.
The technology also allows surgeons to find and map tumours and nodes with greater accuracy during surgery.
