Consistent, Economical Thyroid Screening
- August 26, 2020
Researchers introduced a new laser technology that could enable consistent and cost-effective screening for thyroid nodules in their new project “Laser and Ultrasound Co-analyzer for Thyroid Nodules” (LUCA). A new device is low cost, and it helps in better diagnosis during thyroid nodule screening.
The LUCA project’s main aim is to develop a technology that improves data acquisition for medical professionals and also the device can simultaneously probe a patient’s hemodynamics, chemical constitution and anatomy.
LUCA project combines two photonic systems i.e., near-infrared diffuse correlation spectroscopy and time-resolved spectroscopy which helps to collect all the tissue data. Through time-resolved spectroscopy laser nodules collect data on chromophore concentrations like lipids and water.
The DCS laser system features a fiber coupled laser diode at 785 nanometers and developed driving and cooling electronics. The TRS Laser system features photomultipliers and time correlated single photon counting.
According to team researchers the high prevalence of thyroid nodules is up to 76% of the population. The researchers also report that the LUCA project is unique in the scope of collaboration across the scientific community.
