Final Report - EDOCAL (Early detection of cancer using photonic crystal lasers)

Project ID: 231993
Funded under: FP7-SME

Abstract

This is the final report for the EDOCAL project. Funded under the European Commission's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7), EDOCAL combined state-of-the-art laser and imaging technology with leading medical research, expertise and hands-on practical medical treatment experience to validate the first prototype and investigate whether or not it not it would be effective in discriminating early cancerous tissue from healthy tissue. The project has succeeded in establishing proof of concept for oesophageal cancer detection.

The report covers a general summary of the project and then presents the objectives, work performed and the related outcomes of the project work packages.
