There has been plenty of buzz over whether or not cell phones cause cancer, but now there is a way for smart phones to detect cancer.
Harvard Medical researchers say their prototype smart phone accessory can take and test tiny tissue samples for cancer signs in under an hour.
The device has logged a 96 percent accuracy rate in detection tests. the results have been published by Science Translational Medicine.
Though not ready for prime time, the technology could become in cancer treatment as a less invasive detection tool to analyze patient tissue more frequently.
IEEE Spectrum has an indepth report on the research.
