NIR Light Technique is promising for Premature Baby Lung Examination

Recognizing that premature babies have a hard time getting the oxygen they need because their lungs are not sufficiently developed and that using x-ray tests to examine the amount of air in these babies’ lungs can increase their risk of developing cancer, a team of researchers at Lund University (Sweden) has developed a method that could allow examination to be done using near-infrared (NIR) laser light instead.
