New eye device launched that spots brain tumours20th March 2012
Researchers at the University of Edinburgh have launched a device which uses infra-red light to locate brain tumours.
The i2eye device has been tested as a prototype at Edinburgh Sick Kids hospital. Peter Estibeiro, chief executive officer of i2eye diagnostics, said: "The eye tracker unit is watching your eyes, using your natural reactions to movements on the screen so it can build up a standard visual field map. We would expect it to be useful in most children's hospitals and eye hospitals."
