Cancer Diagnostic Probe

Breast cancer is a type of cancer that starts in the cells of the breast. It is one of the most common cancers in women worldwide, but it can also affect men. Breast cancer occurs when the cells in the breast grow uncontrollably, forming a tumor that can be detected through imaging or felt as a lump. The main objective of Breast-Conserving Surgery (BCS) is to remove cancerous tumors with clear margins during the initial operation to avoid the need for additional surgery. If there are still cancerous cells at the edges of the removed tissue, there is a higher risk of the cancer coming back, leading to additional medical expenses and causing mental and physical stress. Checking the margins of the surgical cavity immediately after tumor removal can help ensure that no cancerous cells are left behind, and the Cancer Diagnostic Probe product is specifically designed for this purpose. The Cancer Diagnostic Probe (CDP) is utilized in conjunction with frozen-section and permanent pathologies to identify high-risk pre-cancer/cancer cells in cavity side margins and cancerous cells in the lymph nodes of breast cancer surgery patients in real-time.

The Efficiency of Cancer Diagnostic Probe in Breast Cancer

Directly checking the margins of the cavity after tumor excision can help prevent any remaining tumor residues, satellite, or scattered cancer cells. Published reports have indicated that conventional intraoperative methods, such as frozen section and X-ray evaluation of dissected tumor margins, still miss diagnosing more than 20% of the involved margins. It is also important to remove all the involved lymph nodes from the body to reduce the risk of local recurrences. The Cancer Diagnostic Probe (CDP) is a real-time diagnostic system that serves as a complementary surgeon-assisted tool. It is used in conjunction with frozen-section and permanent pathologies to detect high-risk pre-cancer/cancer cells in the cavity side margins and cancerous cells in the lymph nodes of patients undergoing breast cancer surgery. In modern cancer therapy, these probes play a crucial role due to their precision and ability to provide detailed information about the presence and characteristics of cancer. This ultimately leads to improved diagnosis, treatment, and patient outcomes.

Checking the cavity-side margins during surgery for breast cancer patients is critical to ensure the definitive removal of suspicious and high-risk lesions with minimal damage to normal tissue. Remaining cancer cells in the breast causes re-surgeries and inevitable post-surgical treatments, which will have several side effects. Frozen pathology of tumor margins during surgery is a clinically accepted procedure to guide the surgeon to any need for re-excision. However, the time-consuming and expert dependent process of margin examination and false diagnostics, especially in neoadjuvant cases, are limitations of this procedure. CDP ( Cancer Diagnostic Probe ) system, has been introduced as a surgical assistant system in breast cancer surgery. The new system reveals the cancerous cells in the internal margins (cavity-side margin) within a few millimeters in 40 seconds, using a needle sensor. This system has a clinical diagnostic classification matching with the pathological results of the tested tissues. The CDP response peaks are based on the classification of the pathological system (Ductal intraepithelial neoplasia (DIN), Lobular intraepithelial neoplasia (LIN), and Fibro epithelial lesion (FEL) (according to the latest reported revisions)). The distinctive ability of CDP to detect cancer cells in the internal margins (after tumor dissection) has the sensitivity and selectivity of 97% and 94%, respectively.

Under Process

A cancer diagnostic probe offers advanced features, including high sensitivity for early detection and precision in identifying tumor margins. This technology has the potential to improve patient prognosis by enabling early intervention and reducing the need for additional surgeries, thus minimizing patient discomfort and treatment costs. Additional features of this device include the following:

Technology of Cancer Diagnostic Probe

  • CDP in the margin mode

CDP›s detection mechanism in the margin mode has been based on real-time detection of released ROS/H2O, molecules by cancer cells during tumor initiation, reverse Warburg effect, and hypoxia-assisted glycolysis.

  • CDP in the lymph node mode

Involved lymph node detection is also performed based on measuring the impedimetric properties associated with Faxy Acid Oxidation (FAO), which is the most dominant cancer cell metabolism in the lymph node environment.


In the cancer diagnostic probe device, we have incorporated the latest and most accurate techniques to detect and identify molecules released from cancer cells for real-time diagnosis with minimal margin of error. This identification process is carried out in two ways:

Features of Cancer Diagnostic Probe

  • Real-time and non-invasive detection of involved cavity side margins which are not detected by frozen-section pathology
  • A diagnostic accuracy of over 93% during breast cancer surgery
  • Real-time detection of involved lymph nodes with 91% sensitivity
  • Reduction of about 30% of the involved cavity side margins
  • Intraoperative diagnosis of excision-required newly discovered solid masses that were not evaluated in presurgical evaluations
  • Increasing the prognosis factor and reducing the local recurrence rate in breast cancer patients.
  • Using disposable head probes to prevent the transmission of contamination


About the value you can compare it to old methods like as Frozen pathology. A standard frozen section service is around 300 USD (it is different in different countries and different hospitals) A normal general hospital performs around 20 surgeries in average. 50% of service belongs to doctor and 50% is hospitals’ share. It means around 150USD is hospitals share for using frozen pathology per order and 20 multiple 150 USD means 3000 USD per month revenue. Yearly it will be around 36.000 USD revenue and after 2 years the revenue will be around 72,000 USD. So if we consider CDP same as frozen pathology after 2 years device will return around 72.000 USD for a normal general hospital.
It needs some simple training sessions that should be held by the HOSPITECH Co. training department.
According to the surgeon’s evaluations, it can be used for every breast cancer patient or in some special categories including non-chemo-treated, chemo-treated, breast-conserving surgeries (BCS), extensive scattered DCIS patients, patients suspicious for nipple involvement
The product is innovative. The lack of such a solutions is proven and there is not any similar technology in Iran. The rate of breast cancer in Iran is high. Using CDP is not just a technology or business. It is life surviving solution and can save 3 of 10 patient’s life there.
Now all scientific societies believe in importance of cavity side and margin checking during the cancer surgery. And CDP is one of the leading products with highest accuracy in this field. Now CDP is transforming to be a Cancer Detection Platform for Surgeons for all Cancer surgeries.
As discussed in question 2, CDP is a highly-sensitive device that is unique in the detection of cavity side margin. It has about 93% sensitivity and 91% specificity in comparison with the gold standard (permanent pathology). Its head probes are disposable and cost-effective and have a very short response time. Several clinical trials with overall 8000 samples have been carried out by CDP until now.
