An innovative approach for guiding cancer surgery is proposed in this paper. Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography (SDOCT) and Hyperspectral Imaging (HSI) are combined with the goal of taking advantage of the complementary capabilities provided by each technique: spatial (3D) information at the micron scale and spectral signatures of the biological specimens. The proposed approach offers the potential to solve a major dilemma that every surgeon has to address in the operating room: “are surgical margins free from any outbreak of cancer?”. Preliminary results of this work on excised specimens indicate that combined SDOCT-HSI imaging enables reliable detection of cancer presence and therefore it might be used in the future as a clinical tool for differentiating positive margins during surgery..
