World-first imaging probe searches for cancer with lasers and sound

The prototype ultrasonic probe can produce a 3D map revealing the stiffness and spatial features of structures measured in the nanoscale

Scientists at the University of Nottingham have developed a first-of-its-kind imaging sensor designed to be deployed inside the human body to build 3D maps of cellular structures. The prototype device, which combines lasers and sound waves in an optical fiber no thicker than a human hair, could be used in conjunction with standard endoscopes to reveal abnormalities in cells indicative of cancer.
