 French surgeons destroy brain tumour on conscious patient in world first

 French brain surgeons have conducted a world first by destroying a brain tumour on a conscious patient using keyhole laser surgery.The team from Pitié-Salpêtrière hospital in Paris drilled a 3mm hole into the skull of a patient under local anaesthetic, inserting a tiny fibre-optic cable armed with a laser. The doctors were then able to "see" the metastatic tumour and steer the cable thanks to a MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) scan, which uses magnetic and radio waves.

If one goes back to the 19th century, there are references to the involvement of physicists in medicine. Michael Faraday, for example, gave lectures to doctors in hospitals. However, it wasn't until 1906 that the first two lecturers were appointed to teach physics to students in UK medical schools.
