 Non-invasive Optical Technique Detects Cancer
Researchers are trying to increase the field of view of the device so that they can image the full lesion along with its border to healthy tissue.

They are also working on speeding up the post-processing of the optical signal to enable live vasculature display, and improving the portability of the system, which currently occupies an area about half the size of an office desk. "We believe that in the future our method will help to simplify non-invasive dermatological in vivo diagnostics and allow for in-depth treatment monitoring," says Blatter.
