Abstract
Multimodal sapphire scalpel for intraoperative diagnosis and therapy. The multimodal sapphire scalpel was developed using the edge-defined film-fed growth technique aided by the cutting edge mechanical sharpening. The sapphire properties are combined with the presence of as-grown hollow internal capillary channels for the optical fibers accommodation. Thanks to the features of the sapphire scalpel, multimodal optical diagnosis of tissues with their dissection became available. The attained results justified a strong potential of the sapphire scalpel to become an efficient tool for minimizing the volume of the normal tissue removal around the tumor by detecting the tumor margins.
