Lancor Scientific, a Startup in London has developed a Blockchain-based screening device that will aid in the early detection of cancer. They have also launched a platform which can be used for booking, reviewing, and paying for a scheduled test. The payment is made using either fiat money or cryptocurrencies.
Cancer Detection Device That is 90% Accurate
Tumour Trace is the health device which the company says, has a 90 percent accuracy when it comes to the detection of early stages of cancer in patients. Within two minutes, this device can detect defective tissues. Tumour Trace employs opto-magnetic imaging spectroscopy to note the changes that occur in tissues during the development stage of cancer.
Also, Tumour trace has been distributed to some clinics in the area who have collaborated with Lancor Scientific. But first, a patient has to register on the company’s web portal from their smartphone. They are then given an ID which can be presented at any of the affiliated clinical centers for their scan to be conducted.
Test Results Are Securely Stored on Blockchain’s Platform
The test results are then stored on the Blockchain platform to ensure that the data is on a secure digital registry. This data can easily be accessed by the patient and other medical centers that may want to use it to prescribe a treatment for them. Also, plans are being made to see that Health organizations in other countries use that Tumour device.
Aamir Butt, CEO of the company, said that they aim to allow cancer screening to be easily accessible to anyone. This will help in the early detection of the medical condition. Therefore, one way they have sought to make this possible is with the use of their health device and maintaining data on the Blockchain platform.
Blockchain Technology Gets Adopted in Health Industry
In November, ICONLOOP developed a system to predict disease in people. This tool has been said to make predictions about the state of health of a person, three years from now. That being the case, it will help in detecting and combating potential risks that may occur in future, on time.
Also in health, a Blockchain-based platform was launched earlier this month to aid in the treatment of cancer. This platform helps oncologists to determine if the treatment given to a patient is improving their condition. The platform also makes suggestions for possible treatments by comparing known cases with possible solutions.
