A laser handheld scanner has been developed by researchers from UC Irvine and University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, which will be a handier device for women to detect breast cancer.
This scanner is more effective than using mammograms, which is able to provide detailed metabolic information by measuring hemoglobin, fat and water content, as well as tumor oxygen consumption and tissue density.
This handheld laser scanner has had some clinical trials ad proven itself effective. It provides information quickly and accessible at bedside, lets oncologists tailor chemotherapy based on how a patient responds; leads to a more effective treatment of breast cancer.
