Important step in breast cancer research

13 julio 2015

Scientists have been working for some time on a new technique to detect breast cancer. The technique based on the physical principle of photoacoustics, has been christened PAMmography. It uses short bursts of light that cause ultrasonic waves to be generated in places with high density of blood vessels, such as in the vicinity of malignant tumors. The scientists show that breast tumors have specific manifestations and forms in images made using their technique.img src=»» height=»1″ width=»1″ alt=»»/
