There have been rapid advancements in imaging techniques being used in India. Two of these are cryogenic electron microscopy (cryo-EM) and photoacoustic imaging.
Indian government’s science research funding agency announced that India would get four new cryo-EMs. Cryo-EM is a protein imaging technique. It will help medical professionals give quicker detection and response to any new disease.
Meanwhile Photoacoustic systems are built on the conventional ultrasound imaging platform; the only additional cost is of the light source. As such, the cost to a patient is comparable to an ultrasound scan. This artificial intelligence-augmented photoacoustic imaging technique is an advancement in cancer diagnostics.
