High-definition imaging to improve early diagnosis of cancer
Universidad Politécnica de Madrid researchers are involved in a European network to develop an endoscopic scanner for early detection of certain types of cancers that have a high mortality rate today.
The Endo TOFPET-US project aims to develop a generation of medical scanners specifically designed for the examination of certain organs. Endo TOFPET-US is an international consortium which is technically led by CERN and uses the latest advances on detectors of high-energy physics to enhance the quality of nuclear medical images, particularly the images known as Positron Emission Tomography (PET).
