New MRI technology that illuminates cancer cells
Toronto: Identifying cancerous tissue and cells is one of the most difficult tasks in treating cancer. Now with the modified technology of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) we can see cancer cells brighter and clearer than other healthy parts.
In this invention of the University of Waterloo in Canada, the cancerous parts in the MRI images can be seen very clearly and brightly. However, his heart and brain are artificial intelligence (AI) developed by Alexander Wong and other experts.
Water travels through cancer cells differently than healthy cells. This new method of imaging has been dubbed ‘synthetic correlated diffusion imaging’. It mixes and analyzes images taken at different times and from different angles, looking at different intensities. Artificial intelligence also plays a role in this process.
In this regard, 200 patients from different hospitals who were suffering from prostate cancer were examined. Synthetic correlated diffusion imaging proved to be more effective than conventional MRI. This makes the cancer cells look different. This can make it much easier for both the doctor and the radiologist to diagnose the underlying disease.
We know that radiation therapy also affects the surrounding healthy cells. Similarly, accurate identification of cancerous cells is essential for drug delivery. That is why access to cancerous sites is still a major challenge in cancer treatment.
Prostate cancer is common in men around the world and is spreading rapidly in poor countries. In the second stage, the same method has been successfully tested on breast cancer. Analysts and experts have called it a revolutionary and game-changing technology.
