Breakthrough 3D medical imaging of cells may allow for early cancer detection
Can donuts help cure cancer? Sugary dough? Probably not. But what about the shape? Researchers at Swinburne University of Technology claim a breakthrough technique for super-resolution 3D imaging of living cells to assist in minimally-invasive surgery and even the early detection of cancer.
"They have for the first time demonstrated that greater image definition can be achieved with a two-photon probe using a special donut-shaped beam generated from a double-clad optical fibre." - phys.org
