Waiting for the results of a biopsy can be an harrowing experience.
Wong's Elucid Labs Non-Invasive Technology Promises to Reduce Biopsies
A medical startup has developed cutting-edge imaging technology that has the potential to detect skin cancer without leaving a mark.
Elucid Labs uses artificial intelligence (AI) technology in a small non-invasive imaging device to analyze moles and other skin lesions for signs of skin cancer, helping dermatologists make faster, more accurate decisions and reducing the number of unnecessary biopsies.
The French-Canadian BIOMEDInnov Summer School will take place June 18 to 22, 2018, and will engage students designing innovative new technologies for health and medicine. The program focuses on needs-driven design to develop clinically relevant biomedical technologies. Travelling to France to attend the summer school are 22 students (from all universities) and 6 researchers from the University of Waterloo who were involved in the international exchange.
