Point-of-Care Device Could Improve Thyroid Cancer Screening

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
An international team of researchers developed a point-of-care device that could enable consistent and cost-effective screening for thyroid nodules. This novel device builds on the current ultrasound standard with a hybrid optics/ultrasound probe. The EU project called Laser and Ultrasound Co-analyzer for Thyroid Nodules (LUCA) aims to develop a new, noninvasive low-cost device that will provide more specific results in thyroid nodule screening and enable better diagnosis of thyroid cancer.
