In Brief

Researchers from the University of Leicester in the UK create a non-invasive disease detection facility.

This Diagnostic Development Unit (DDU) is the result of an inter-college project at the University of Leicester, UK. It has been developed for use in Leicester Royal Infirmary’s A&E department. Designed to detect the ‘sight, smell and feel’ of disease, it does so without the use of invasive probes, blood tests, or other time-consuming and uncomfortable procedures. The £1m high-tech diagnostic unit, which uses space-age technology, would be able to diagnose a range of illnesses using monitors and imaging systems.
