Revolution in Cancer Diagnosis by Smart Needles | OpenGrowth

The disease “Cancer” affects a whopping 50 percent of people in their lifetime, while one-in-two succumb to this deadly cancer diagnosis disease. However, with the rising innovations in future technologies, Scientists have produced pioneering innovative technologies that can identify and diagnose one of the most common cancer diagnosis types within a couple of seconds. And guess what’s the main ingredient? It’s using the light.

 

What is the Smart Needle?

A varied team of experts has formed a ground-breaking ‘smart needle’ probe that utilizes light to detect cancerous tissues or cells instantaneously. This form of “optical biopsy” uses Raman spectroscopy, which measures the rate of light scattered by tissues when a low-power laser falls onto it.

Light scatters differently for healthy or cancerous tissues, which indicates that health professionals can detect whether there are any issues or not within seconds. The outcomes show it is likely to present a fingerprint of the disease that can be used to cancer diagnosis within a couple of seconds, producing near-instantaneous effects for the doctor and decreasing patient anxiety.

What The Research Team Has To Say in This Regard?

Professor Nick Stone, from the University of Exeter and Project head of this innovation, said:

“The Raman smart needle can measure the molecular changes associated with disease in tissues and cells at the end of the needle. Provided we can reach a lump or bump of interest with the needle tip; we should be able to assess if it is healthy or not.”

While initial diagnosis can be an important determinant in providing adequate treatment, prevailing methods can be both invasive and time-consuming, making the patients anxious about results. The team believes that this new system could improve the solution for extra health benefits. the rate of detection and diagnosis of cancers, particularly lymphoma, the sixth most prevalent cancer in the UK.

A sample of affected cells will be taken from a suspected lump of patients suffering from lymphoma, followed by a surgical biopsy of the node, to achieve a full diagnosis. This whole process can often take over two weeks. The team expects this new technique to avoid surgery and chemotherapy and provide a less invasive and faster technique to determine cancer diagnosis whether the patient has cancer or not.

HOW YOU CAN RECOVER YOUR STOLEN FUNDS NOW I was scammed over ( $275,000 ) by someone I met online on a fake investment project. I started searching for help legally to recover my money, and I came across a lot of Testimonies about HACKER STEVE. I contacted him, providing the necessary information and it took him and his team of experts about 36 hours to locate and help recover my stolen funds. I am so relieved and the best part was, the scammer was located and arrested by local authorities in his region. I hope this helps as many out there who are victims. I strongly recommend Steve professional services for assistance with swift and efficient recovery. You can reach him for any form of recovery (Crypto, Credit card, Gift card, Forex, NFT, etc) on Gmail: Hackersteve911@gmail.com

I am amazed by Dr omonkoa herbal remedy. I Have had herpes for over 6 years with frequent outbreaks. Sometimes average 2-3 times per month. Before one breakout could end, the next would begin. Nothing has helped me. I came online in search for a possible way to see how I can fight this virus so I found Dr here online after seeing a lot of testimonies of how he cured herpes and other diseases with natural herbs so I decided to give it a try, I only took his remedy for two weeks and I was completely cured. I recommend Dr omonkhoa remedy to anyone suffering from herpes that wants to be completely cured too. email: dromonkhoaherbs@gmail.com and for quick response Message him on his whatsapp number +2349127394641 and is website https://dromonkhoaherbs.wixsite.com/dr--omonkhoa-herbs
