Microchip sensor monitors tumour growth
Added: Wednesday 14 September 2011
Researchers in Munich have developed a microchip sensor that can be implanted in the patient's body, close to a tumour, to monitor the tumour's growth. The sensor works by tracking oxygen levels in nearby tissue. Project manager Sven Becker said that the device was developed for tracking tumours which are difficult to reach or better left alone - for example, tumours near the spine.
