Doctors in the future might be able to diagnose breast and ovarian cancer or Alzheimer's disease using magnetism and microscopic particles of iron oxide bound to the type of cells being traced.
A team led by Dr. Richard Larson of the University of New Mexico Cancer Research and Treatment Center and Ed Flynn of Senior Scientific LLC is investigating the potential of bio-magnetic sensors for early detection of disease or organ rejection.
The super-sensitive sensors can detect cancer cells in far smaller concentrations than current technology can - meaning earlier detection and treatment, they say.
