 Arthritis to Now be Detected Before the Onset of Symptoms!
Detection of arthritis can now be done before the start of its symptoms with the use of revolutionary new laser scanner created by British scientists.

The revolutionary new scanner created by British scientists could help start arthritis treatment by spotting signs of the crippling disease before it has done painful and irreversible damage to cartilage in the joints, the Daily Express reported.

Professor Allen Goodship, of University College London said that the research is at an early stage but the results are promising and possibly in the future, the technique, called Spatially Offset Raman Spectroscopy, could be effective as a screening tool.
