Biosensors: Spotting Abdominal Lesions
IME researchers have developed a novel wireless tagging module for precise location marking in capsule endoscopy. The module comprises a thermo-mechanical actuator and a biocompatible radio opaque micro tag.
animal experiments demonstrated that the embedded tags could be picked up by x-ray imaging to enable precise location of problem areas in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. The proposed module is expected to greatly improve surgical treatment outcome for patients.
