Collaborating researchers from Tokyo University of Science, National Cancer Center Hospital East, and RIKEN Center for Advanced Photonics have developed a technology using near-infrared hyperspectral imaging (NIR-HIS) and machine learning that finds hidden tumors, such as those in deep tissue and/or covered by a mucosal layer.
These tumors are difficult to find with standard methods such as endoscopy. Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs), often found in the stomach and small intestines, for example, can require time-consuming and difficult techniques that can prolong diagnosis.
The new technique aims to improve that process specifically. Hiroshi Takemura, a doctor at Tokyo University of Science, said that while the method is…READ MORE
