Nanotechnology Shows Promise for More Accurate Prostate Cancer Screenings, Prognosis

(Medical Xpress) – Backman has been studying cell abnormalities at the nanoscale in many different types of cancers, using an optical technique he pioneered called partial wave spectroscopic (PWS) microscopy. PWS can detect cell features as small as 20 nanometers, uncovering differences in cells that otherwise appear normal using standard microscopy techniques.
