Taking a Quick Swipe at Cancer

A new handheld scanner will allow the doctor to simply swipe a 30-centimeter baton over the patient’s body. Information on irregular tissues will be displayed on a computer screen and in five minutes the exam will be over. The new device, TRIMprob (Tissue Resonance InterferoMeter Probe), consists of a battery-powered baton that produces a signal when it hits a tumor.
