London is a city of technology. It is a place where its tenants get the best of lifestyle and treatment. For now, iKnife is being tested in London to treat cancer.
What is cancer?
The building block of a human being’s life is known as cell. When the cells start growing in an uncontrollable way the cells are said to be abnormal and cause cancer. In past many years cancer has been a lethal disease.

The main problem with cancer has always been that the target is to remove the cells which are abnormal; however, they have direct link to cells which are important for the body. There are different types of cancers and truly it has always been a miracle to come out of this disease.
In addition, one may breakdown cancer in five main parts such as carcinoma, sarcoma, Leukemia, Lymphoma and central nervous system cancers. Although, tumors are somehow related to cancer but one needs to understand every tumor is not a cancer. There are two types of tumors benign and malignant. Benign tumors are not cancerous and can be removed completely. On the other hand, malignant tumors can spread all over the body and are cancerous.
How would iKnife work?
Intelligence knife is being tested in nearly three hospitals of London. Mostly surgeons leave some of the cancerous cells behind because they cannot identify all the malignant cells with cancer but this iKnife would indicate accurately where the cancerous cells are present. It is a better form of “electric scalpel” which is used with electricity to sear through internal organs and membranes.
The intelligence knife is used with mass spectrometer and the whole process appears as traffic signal. Inventor of this special magical intelligence knife is Dr Zoltan Takats. He has been claiming that the intelligence knife can identify many other problems; however, the main focus is cancer detection at the moment.
