If everything remains on track and as per expectations, researchers are all set to achieve the tool which can make chemotherapy more efficient, reduce its side effects and improve how doctors treat some of the most deadly forms of cancer.
According to sources, scientists are working to upgrade the tool used to examine and detect cancer and other illnesses, called Endoscope which can be beneficial during the treatment of cancerous cell and tumors also.
Researchers are in the process for a novel endoscopic device that would improve the ability to detect and destroy cancer cells. The new endoscope utilizes spatial frequency domain imaging. This new technique corrects the image contrast problem by projecting patterns of light at different frequencies on the cancer cells. This results in a high-contrast map of the tumor environment.
Experts said that chemotherapy drugs will be delivered intravenously. But unlike conventional treatment, the drugs will be encapsulated in tiny liposomes called nanoballoons.
Scientists have said that a sunar is developing a "digital mask" that adjusts the beam's intensity as well as manipulates its shape down to micron (one millionth of a meter) precision using a computer. The system could be especially useful for treating ovarian cancer that has spread to the abdomen, as well as cancer in the lungs, gastrointestinal tract, mouth and other internal organs.
