“A Unique Way to Perform Cholestrol Test”

Researchers in India have proposed a method for keeping track of the cholesterol levels in heart patients.  It is a unique method of performing cholesterol test with the help of a digital camera.
Digital camera then performs the total cholesterol test by taking snapshots of the back of the patient’s hands. In this test, blood samples are not used. The snapshots of the new patients are cropped and compared with the existing images within the database of cholesterol levels.
The total cholesterol test is a decent way to keep the initial check of different cholesterol problems. Although a detailed analysis would be required in order to differentiate between the types of cholesterol: HDL and LDL. Analysis of the triglycerides is the more accurate health assessment for patients with high total cholesterol levels. The cholesterol levels are revealed with the help of skin image analysis.

Bentham Science Publishers’ journal “Recent Patents on Cardiovascular Drug Discovery” publishes diverse articles on clinical drug trial studies and guest edited thematic issues on recent patents in the field of cardiovascular drug discovery. This Bentham Journal is a useful guide for all researchers involved in the cardiovascular drug design and discovery. For more information, you can check
