"Even if we hide a small amount of explosive somewhere because there will be a bit of texture in the middle of a lot of other stuff, the algorithm will find it." The technique could be used in medical applications, including cancer screening, according to the research team. Although the researchers have not yet tested whether the technique can successfully distinguish the texture of a tumor from the surrounding healthy breast tissue, they are excited about the possibility of detecting very small tumors that would not previously have been detected behind a patient's rib cage."I would love to do it one day," Olivo said. "If we achieve a similar success rate in detecting the texture of tumors, the potential for early diagnosis is huge."Explosives inside electronicsExplosives can be difficult...
