How Mobile Will Detect Cancer

Times of India

Mobiles helping you detect cancer? A method has been developed whereby healthworkers, nurses and general physicians would use SANA’s (a team of researchers under Harvard and MIT) automated questionnaires on the phone to ask questions of the patient, then take a picture of a lesion and finally diagnose by using decision support algorithms or transmitting the data to Narayana Hrudayalaya’s EMR system for specialist feedback.

The software was developed by the SANA team which comprises 45 engineers, doctors, business students and public health scientists from Harvard and MIT. Sidhant Jena and Russel Ryan are not the brains behind SANA but are leading SANA’s efforts in India, says Sidhant Jena. SANA is a multidisciplinary group of students, faculty and professionals at MIT and Harvard University.
