We have witnessed impressive advances in preoperative imaging of cancer and the development of dualmodality scanners. However, there is a need for a scanner with functional and anatomical imaging capability suitable for surgical settings and radioguided surgery. The current paper introduces a handheld gamma-ultrasound scanner prototype and illustrates the initial result of testing its very first version. The result of the testing was promising and encouraging in continuing the further development of the prototype.
