This Toronto company is using tech to make cancer scanning faster and more accurate

For pathologists, identifying cancer-positive lymph nodes in tissue can be like searching for a needle in a haystack. With the help of ultrasound and AI, Tenomix is trying to revamp that process.

At a young age, startup founder Saumik Biswas had two unexpected and heartbreaking experiences, both of which set him on a path to develop better cancer screening.

Biswas was 7 when his younger brother was diagnosed with a rare genetic mutation. The two-year-old was missing a tibia, a bone in the lower leg. Orthopedic surgeons at SickKids in Toronto inserted a metal rod as scaffolding in the boy’s leg and harvested his stem cells to grow bone around it.

I was exposed to amazing medical innovation at a young age.

My brother is even taller than me!
