    Multi-Mode Imaging Probe Could Detect Ovarian Cancer

    Ovarian cancer is difficult to diagnose in its early stages because symptoms often don’t manifest themselves until the disease has spread, and also because there is no effective screening method. Researchers at the University of Connecticut and the University of Southern California (U.S.A.) have developed a multi-mode imaging probe that could examine ovarian tissue via minimally invasive surgery (Biomed.
