We want to offer a more accurate, simple, and cost-effective diagnosis of rectal cancer in the first place. There are currently no reliable methods for determining with certainty whether rectal cancer has spread to nearby lymph nodes. However, this is an important marker of how far the rectal cancer has progressed.
At NanoEcho, we are developing a new user-friendly imaging method called magnetomotive ultrasound, which combines nanotechnology with modern ultrasound technology. The amount of accumulated nanoparticles allows differentiation between healthy and diseased tissues.
