DUSSELDORF, Germany, May 27, 2016 — Thyroid CoanalyzerPhotonics21 has announced the LUCA, a laser and ultrasound coanalyzer for thyroid nodules, designed to make thyroid nodule diagnosis more accurate and objective.

The Luca probe is placed on the neck of a patient, sending light and ultrasound of different wavelengths and frequencies into the skin to see physiology in great detail. The platform combines ultrasound and near-infrared diffuse optical technologies in a single device and probe.

By combining information about tissue hemodynamics, chemical constitution and anatomy, the technique overcomes the shortcomings of present techniques while screening for malignant thyroid nodules.
