Are Sensors and Data Processing Paving the Way to Completely Non-invasive and Not-painful Medical Tests for Widespread Screening and Diagnosis Purposes?

Giovanni Saggio

Abstract

Effective medical tests are essential in supporting correct clinical decisions by medical doctors. But, have medical tests to be necessarily invasive and painful to be effective? During last decades, new developments of sensors and improvements of data analysis algorithms seem to paying the way to a (more or less near) future with completely non-invasive and not painful medical tests. This work aims to furnish a survey on what is going on within this frame, with an eye to new possibilities.
