Ahmad Salmanoghli Khayavi, a researcher of the project, said tumor cells can be controlled before they reach the development stage, ISNA reported.
One of the main problems in detecting small tumor cells through optical imaging is low penetration of light inside tissues, which is not sufficient for detection.
The imaging used Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO), which sends a large number of nano-biosensors to tumors that boost emitted photons to detect small tumors in the early stages.
The research is conducted in four phases that deal with designing and simulating nanoparticles. Then biological elements were added and nano-biosensors were finalized. The method uses PSO algorithm to boost targeting precision.
Using the method, the tumors would appear in the early stage and can be controlled by precise imaging before reaching the development and invasive phase that could prove effective in detecting and treating cancer.
Results of the research have been published in IEEE Transactions on Biochemical Engineering.
