A more accurate way to diagnose liver diseases
A new imaging system that can automatically scan liver tissue samples to check for diseases - obviating the need for pathologists to do so manually - has been licensed for use in Singapore.
Called Laennec, it is the first such system to be approved for clinical use.
Its developer, local medtech company HistoIndex, is in discussions with three of Singapore's largest hospitals to introduce it.
