Selfies to self-diagnosis: Algorithm ‘amps up’ smartphones to diagnose disease

Selfies to self-diagnosis: Algorithm 'amps up' smartphones to diagnose disease 2

Smartphones aren’t just for selfies anymore. A novel cell phone imaging algorithm can now analyze assays typically evaluated via spectroscopy, a powerful device used in scientific research. Researchers analyzed more than 10,000 images and found that their method consistently outperformed existing algorithms under a wide range of operating field conditions. This technique reduces the need for bulky equipment and increases the precision of quantitative results. https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2019/02/190212092608.htm
