Our coil and transformer are used in a test setup for a magnificent project at the University of Twente department “Magnetic Detection & Imaging”. Project number 14322 ‘magnetic sensing for laparoscopy (MagLap)’, financed by NWO-TTW.

Detection of the sentinel lymph node (SLN) in cancer patients can overrule the requirement for resection of all regional lymph nodes, which leads to decreased morbidity. The use of magnetic nanoparticles has many advantages over nuclear tracers, which are the current standard to detect SLNs. The principle used to achieve SLN detection is differential magnetometry (DiffMag). Read more
