Following robotic assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy (RALP), surgical margins are assessed for presence of cancerous tissues. An EIS/EIT based approach to identify benign and malignant tissues was evaluated. Excised prostates were probed using a micro-endoscopic EIT probe, and impedance measurements corresponding to benign and tumorous regions are compared.
