Patients planned for elective inguinal, axillary or cervical lymph node dissection or parotidectomy, patients with rectal cancer undergoing rectal surgery and patients undergoing resection of a soft tissue tumour.
Procedure: Surgical resection
Patients planned for elective inguinal, axillary or cervical lymph node dissection or parotidectomy , patients with rectal cancer undergoing rectal surgery and patients undergoing resection of a soft tissue tumour.
The aim of this pilot study is to prove that an investigational optical spectroscopy system can provide accurate identification of nerve tissue during surgery.
The goal of this pilot study is to evaluate whether optical spectroscopy is able to differentiate between nerve tissue and surrounding tissue.
During the measurement procedure, possible improvements of the measurement hardware will be recorded and the handling of the optical spectroscopy system during surgery will be evaluated.
