Imaging Technology Improves Accuracy and Diagnostics

In most medical scenarios the standard has been that a patient who was believed to have cancer or some type of internal tissue or organ damage undergoes a biopsy, waits for results, sometimes which take quite a bit of time. Today New medical imaging technologies are enabling doctors to spot cancer tissues and cells in less than five minutes, with just fewer than 100% accuracy, according to the University of Illinois.

When it comes to fears of or a diagnosis of cancer, speed of diagnosis and initiation of cancer treatment is essential for a positive prognosis. The new technique under development is called nonlinear interferometric vibrational imaging, or NIVI. The medical imaging technology produces color-coded images that are easy to read and interpret and eliminates the need for doctors to be relatively subjective when it comes to reading imaging results in traditional imaging formats.

Stains are added to tissue samples that make cancerous or abnormal cells and tissues more visible. The study, sponsored by the National Cancer Institute and the National Institutes of Health is striving to find imaging system technology that’s higher in resolution and spectrum as well as in flexibility to adapt to various types of molecules and cellular structures.

Cancer treatments abroad benefits from faster diagnosis. The earlier the diagnosis, the earlier cancer treatment procedures can begin. Traditional cancer treatment consisting of chemotherapy and radiation combined with cancer therapy drugs can help early diagnosis cancer patients enjoy outcomes that are more positive. Locations such as Bio Care Hospital and Health Center in Tijuana, Mexico and the Artemis Health Institute in Gurgaon, India are just a sampling of affordable and effective destinations for cancer treatment abroad.
