Dog has natural gift of better smelling power which can be exploited for several purposes and disease diagnosis is one amongst them. The work on the use of dog nose in disease diagnosis is in preliminary stage. The electronic noses/e-noses are sensor based physical devices which are used to detect and analyse the various volatile organic compounds (VOCs) specific for health disorders including cancer to metabolic and infectious diseases. The sensor based disease diagnosis is also in preliminary… 

Engineering solutions to breath tests based on an e-nose system for silicosis screening and early detection in miners

The e-nose technique and the breath analysis methods reported are expected to provide a quick and accurate screening for silicosis, and extensible for other diseases.

Canine Detection of the Volatile Organic Compounds Related to Cervical Cancer Cells

The great odor detection threshold exhibited by dogs is not unheard of and represents a potential opportunity to develop an affordable, accessible, and non-invasive method for detection of CC with high sensibility and specificity values.



Application and Uses of Electronic Noses for Clinical Diagnosis on Urine Samples: A Review

This paper focuses on the review of electronic nose studies and applications in the specific field of medical diagnostics based on the analysis of the gaseous headspace of human urine in order to provide a broad overview of the state of the art and thus enhance future developments in this field.

Electronic Nose Ovarian Carcinoma Diagnosis Based on Machine Learning Algorithms

It is shown that the use of proper algorithms for analysis of the multi-sensor data from the electronic nose yielded surprisingly good results with more than 77% classification rate.

Application of Electronic-Nose Technologies and VOC-Biomarkers for the Noninvasive Early Diagnosis of Gastrointestinal Diseases †

A new diagnostic approach, which combines the use of e-nose instruments for early rapid prophylactic disease-screenings with targeted identification of known disease biomarkers, is proposed to yield cheaper, quicker and more dependable diagnostic results.

Electronic noses and disease diagnostics

Using artificial intelligence and web-based knowledge systems, electronic noses that can detect and discriminate the production profiles of volatile compounds from microbial infections in situ might have a valuable role in monitoring disease epidemiology.

Canine scent detection in the diagnosis of lung cancer: revisiting a puzzling phenomenon

To test the robustness of the presence of a so far unknown volatile organic compound in the breath of patients with lung cancer, sniffer dogs were applied and lung cancer was identified with an overall sensitivity and a specificity of 93%.

Detection of lung cancer by sensor array analyses of exhaled breath.

The exhaled breath of patients with lung cancer has distinct characteristics that can be identified with an electronic nose, and the results provide feasibility to the concept of using the electronic nose for managing and detecting lung cancer.

Differentiating head and neck carcinoma from lung carcinoma with an electronic nose: a proof of concept study

In differentiating head and neck from lung carcinoma patients, a diagnostic accuracy of 93 % was found and there seems to be a potential for e-nose as a diagnostic tool in HNC and lung carcinomas.
