New Israeli mobile phone to detect breast cancer


Source: PhysOrg

Inspired by biofeedback therapy, Israeli researchers have developed a prototype mobile phone with a rudimentary infrared camera that can be easily, quickly, and non-intrusively used to detect the presence of breast cancer and heart disease. Infrared cameras are used to detect temperature and oxygen flow variations throughout breast tissue. After a completed scan, a data packet is uploaded wirelessly to a diagnostic center where doctors determine if more checks are necessary. Israeli mobile company Cellcom is planning on bringing consumer handsets with this technology included to market.
