Knowing our bureaucracy by the time doctors actually get them they will cost $20k instead of $200.

On a side note, just to clarify for the laypersons - you can't just stick a needle anywhere, and it's not a blood test. you have to actually insert the needle into a tumor. Most of the time, you will need either ultrasound guidance or flouroscopy (moving x-ray) to get into the tumor, unless it's close to the skin surface. So self-monitoring and home use are probably not really feasible.

That's not a criticism though, this is a nice step forward.

A little faster response time than a biopsy.smile.gif If you really want to get tested you need a full body MRI. If you are in any kind of pain near the abdomen it's a good thing to get it checked out. I hope someday they do find a much easier method of detecting cancer.

Imagine it.. waking up to a sun filled morning. All is well.. then out of no where a robotic voice all the sudden spews out "You have cancer."

What an amazing invention. I can't wait for the day when I go into my GP to have my sore throat checked and in 10 minutes he/she tells me that not only if I have strep throat but also if I have cancer.

They seem to jumping the gun on saying that this is more accurate than conventional tests, at least without further testing.

96% accurate? not good enough, something this serious needs a way of confirming 100%.

The previous early detection methods were around 80%. Considering this is cheaper and better i'd say it's more than good enough.

well...
it does have room for improvement. What if the 4% actually leaked out and showed that all the people had cancer. Remember 4% can mean a lot of different things.
