This Application also claimed for 100 percent accurate in detecting a cancer and distinguishing between a benign cancer and the malignant cancer. It seems that the technology in the medical fields also has a significant change such as this Phrazer device.
The Applications that are compatible with smartphones "claimed 100 percent accurate in distinguishing between benign and malignant cancer. Amazingly, the application only takes one hour to diagnose cancer, which means that patients no longer need to wait for days or weeks to be the result.
Researchers in the United States also said that the gadget can easily track how effective your doctor given drugs against cancer cells in the patient's body. In an experiment, the applications have not been given that name up to 88 percent accuracy to distinguish a cancer or tumor in the abdomen. After several stages of development, the journal Science Translational Medicine also reported that smartphone applications are already reaching levels of 100 percent accuracy.
This gadget was developed at Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston. This is an application connects to smartphones using miniature machine MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging). The patients with stomach cancer suspected let his hair samples taken using tiny needles on the test.
The researchers then added the example of antibodies to bind to a protein found in the stomach tumor cells. Small magnetic particles and then plugged into the antibody.
Magnets are then incorporated into an MRI machine to stimulate the molecules within the sample, making it vibrate. Molecules vibrate faster and faster, the more likely the patient is suffering from cancer.
"Applications for this smartphone is easy to use tool for physicians, because of the easy grasp and placed in a small room," said Dr. Cesar Castro, one of the research team, was quoted as saying by the Daily Mail.
