Micro-NMR (MRI)

I'm reading a paper that talks about a portable NMR machine that is very accurate at detecting specific cancer biomarkers which eliminates the need for biopsies and a large room for the procedure. I don't know if SF medic curriculum covers cancer diagnosis but if it does, this is something could be of interest due to the low cost and well not having to lug around a large MRI machine.

Here is a general article ( http://www.switched.com/2011/02/28/c...es-via-iphone/)

Here is the scientific article ( http://stm.sciencemag.org/content/3/71/71ra16.abstract )

You have to pay for the scientific article if you don't have access but if you email the Dr, their project coordiantor will give you a PDF copy to read.
