In optoacoustic imaging, short pulses of light are sent into tissue. Because the pulses are so short, the light is converted into sound by the tissue, rather than heat. Dr. Michelle Patterson and Dr. William Whelan&rsquo;s research confirms that cancerous tissue emits sound at a different frequency than non-cancerous tissue.<p><a href="http://news.upei.ca/media/2014/08/19/sound-cancer-upei-researchers-confirm-cancerous-tissues-can-be-detected-their-uniqu" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Research Tue, 19 Aug 2014 11:54:48 +0000 Admin 18609 at http://news.upei.ca
