Anuradha GodavartyAnuradha Godavarty, Associate Professor of Biomedical Engineering, has received tremendous recognition this past week for her patented design of a hand-held optical probe based imaging system with 3-D tracking facilities and the device’s potential impact on breast cancer imaging. The optical hand-held device is capable of 3-D tumor detection in real-time.

This device has the potential to change the way clinicians screen patients for breast cancer as it has the potential of being used more often with no radiation and tissue compression.
