NUST MISIS Laboratory Develops an Ultrasound Tomography System for the Diagnosis of Cancer

Shots:

  • NUST MISIS has developed a system for real-time optical-acoustic and laser ultrasound tomography to detect cancer tumors with high sensitivity and for visual nonlinear visualization of a patient’s blood vessel during operations
  • The development of ultrasound tomography system overcomes the problem of low contrast and low-resolution images of biological tissues & organs obtained with standard ultrasound and provides clinicians about cancerous tissues
  • The system is based on the optoacoustic effect allowing the device to receive two types of images at the same time – optical-acoustic images distinguish area absorbing optical radiation and laser ultrasonic images providing acoustic contrast and distinguish areas that reflecting ultrasound waves
