A medical report released this week has some revolutionary and surprising information that can significantly increase the chances of detecting cancer in some cases. According to the research, patients consuming sugar shortly before going through an MRI screening for cancer can drastically improve the detection rate. Doctors say that the idea is really quite simple, the way sugar reacts in the body is easy to see with an MRI so doctors are basically able to follow it as the sugar spreads through a person.
The way this helps detect cancer is that the cancerous cells react in a unique way when sugar is encountered and this can once again be spotted on an MRI. Overall doctors say that this new screening method is incredibly simple to implement and to understand, plus they’re already working on better ways to improve it. In the future many doctors are planning to give patients a simple injection with a sugar based material and then with an MRI they will be able to quickly and easily detect anything that may be cancerous. This is obviously great news because cancer detection is the only real way to treat it, hopefully in the future this will become a standard treatment procedure for many cancers.
