As Ukrinform reports, Sky News reports on this.
The purpose of the “Skinometer” is to detect how far the cancer has spread under the skin and to speed up the treatment process.
Skin cancer patients currently being treated at University Hospital Coventry are encouraged to participate in trials of the technology, he said.
“Some types (tumors – ed.) may be under the skin, we can’t see them, so there may be some left when we surgically remove them. “We hope that with this technology we can be more sensitive the first time and eliminate more cancer,” said Professor Joe Hardwick.
Currently, several skin samples are taken and examined during the procedure to ensure that all cancer cells have been removed, but using a skin scanner should significantly reduce surgery time.
Professor Emma McPherson hopes that the “Skinometer” will be widely used within the next five years.
As reported by Ukrinform, a group of scientists from University College London demonstrated the effectiveness of tumor treatment technology based on magnetic action on malignant cells, using the example of mice and rats.
