By using electron microscopically-driven imaging, a team of scientists has been able to identify the location of cancer cells in the human body.
The researchers report the results of their work in the journal ACS Nano.
The team also reported that they could accurately identify the cells by measuring their electron levels.
The team’s method involves using a scanning tunneling microscope (STM) to measure the electron levels of individual cells, then measuring the intensity of the laser pulses emitted by the STM as they passed through the cells.
The intensity of these pulses determines how bright the light from the electron microscope is, and how far the laser beam can travel.
The method can also detect the presence of cancerous cells in samples of the patient’s blood.
This technique could be particularly useful in detecting tumors in the blood because the laser light has a longer wavelength than light that is absorbed by the surrounding tissue, allowing for more accurate detection of the cancerous cell in the body.
The researchers hope their technique could help identify tumors in patients who are undergoing surgery, which is where many cancers originate.
They also hope the technique can be used to help identify the cancer cells as part of cancer diagnosis and therapy.
“This technology will help us diagnose cancer faster and in many cases accurately,” lead researcher Dr. Daniel Kocher said in a press release.
“It is a very promising new approach that will give us an important advantage in diagnosing cancer and the early stages of the disease.”
The technique has the potential to help researchers to quickly identify tumors by using the STMs to scan blood samples, and in some cases even diagnose cancer.
The technique could also be used for imaging surgery, where a surgeon uses the STMicro to scan the patient to see how their tumor is growing.
This is a step towards better cancer detection in hospitals, where cancer patients are often under close observation, so the ability to identify cancer cells early in the process is very important.
But the researchers also hope their technology could help doctors diagnose tumors in more distant parts of the body, such as in the abdomen or stomach.
Dr. Kochel added that the technique could ultimately be useful in other types of imaging.
For example, if the STMIC detects cancer cells at the surface of the tumor, that could help determine whether the tumor is spreading, or if it might be metastasizing.
The research was led by researchers at the National Institutes of Health’s Howard Hughes Medical Institute, and the Howard Hughes Research Center.
