After three years of training by the Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals Foundation in the UK, it was announced that dogs could be used to diagnose bowel cancer.
Researchers have found that dogs can be trained to detect bowel cancer as part of a medical experiment.
DOGS IN EDUCATION DURING THE HEALTHY AND PATIENT RULES THROUGH 2000
During the three-year trial period to be held at the Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals Foundation, dogs were reported to smell more than 2,000 healthy and sick urine specimens during their training.
Experts comment that dogs have a famous acute scent and that they can identify traces of the scents created by diseases.
According to Medical Detection Dogs, “Dogs can pick up small fragrance concentrations around a fraction of a trillion, and it’s worth remembering that these two olympic pools are as much sugar as tea spoon.”
‘CAN DETERMINE THE ADDICTION OF COLONOSCOPY IN THE DETERMINATION OF CANCER’
“Finding new ways to scan for more accurate and less disturbing bowel cancer, such as urine testing, can reduce the number of unnecessary colonoscopies in a normal and effective manner and increase the number of people involved in the scan,” said Ian Hunter, who is in the explanations for colorectal surgery.
Researchers hope that the new method will make it easier to identify diseases and reduce the need for detection methods that require intervention.
In a previous study, it was reported that 93% confidence in the detection of prostate cancer in urine specimens was achieved.
