Making an impact on other people’s lives – Rochester Business Journal feature

LighTopTech President Dr. Cristina Canavesi was interviewed by the Rochester Business Journal on April 20th, 2018.

When applied to the world of cancer, Canavesi sees LighTopTech being able to make biopsies almost obsolete. Rather than having to be cut open, have tissue sent to a lab and wait for results, the patient can be put under the microscope and have their results back on the spot. No cuts, no stitches, no pain.

“You won’t have to go through all of that pain and all of that wait,” Canavesi said. “You’d be able to get imaging, no cutting, and get the results right there at the doctor’s office.”
