The device Barton developed is only 0.8 millimetres wide and allows for high resolution imaging.
“It’s itty bitty,” explained Barton.
“You just couldn’t have fabricated something like this, even six, seven years ago.”
The device has seen use in a group of four volunteers with Doctor John Heusinkveld reporting the device to be successful.
The volunteers for the trial were already planning to have their tubes removed for non-cancer reasons, removing virtually all risk of harm.
Doctor Heusinkveld explained that this also allows for the creation of a baseline range on what non-cancerous tubes should look like using the device.
