In health care systems located in low- and middle-income countries, addressing the growing burden of cancer diagnosis and surgery may require a new vision — one that leverages affordable, portable, electricity-independent, and accessible biomedical technologies. Technologies that leverage biomedical optics are poised to meet this need because they can capture relevant morphological and physiological information that guides cancer diagnoses and excisions. These technologies can also be developed to enable procedures that are fast, low-cost, noninvasive, and nondestructive to tissue, making such devices potentially well suited for areas where surgical space is limited.

According to the World Health Organization, 4.8 billion people...
