New Potential Way to Spot Hard to Detect Ovarian Cancer

Researchers from the University of Connecticut and the University of Southern California have submitted a new way to detect ovarian cancer. While the current standard procedure is preemptively removing the ovaries, researchers propose that their new device, which combines photoacoustic imaging, high resolution subsurface imaging, and pulse echo ultrasound can detect ovarian cancer with minimally invasive surgery. The device could be inserted into a small slit in live tissue in order to image patients. For more information, please click here.
