Introduction to Magnetic Relaxometry

This video (below) captures the opening minutes of CEO Bob Proulx’s address to the 2016 NobleCon meeting, where he outlines the medical need for a new cancer detection technology. The video briefly covers:

  • The importance of early cancer diagnosis
  • The difficulties of early cancer diagnosis
  • Shortcomings of conventional detection methods
  • How superparamagnetic particles find and attach to cancer cells
  • How magnetic relaxometry differs from MRI
  • The current limit of detection (tumor size) for magnetic relaxometry
