Efficient and timely diagnosis of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) is a critical challenge, particularly in low and middle income countries. These regions, which are expected to witness a drastic increase in HNSCC rates, are ill-prepared to handle the diagnostic burden due to limited resources, especially the low ratio of pathologists per population, resulting in delayed diagnosis and treatment. Here, we demonstrate the potential of an alternative diagnostic method as a low-cost… CONTINUE READING
