Using Light Scans On Cheeks To Assess Cushing’s Remission

An article in Cushing’s Disease News looks at a study originally published in the journal Hormone and Metabolic Research that evaluated a non-invasive scan as a means to confirm that Cushing’s is in remission. The researchers found that near-infrared multi-spectral imaging, which images the patient’s cheek from multiple angles, can actually measure the hemoglobin, water and blood by assessing how light reflects off of the cheek. This can then help predict when a patient is in remission, post-surgery and up to 12 months.
