BDI in the News – January 2013

Research carried out by Dr. Simon Dunne, School of Nursing/ Biomedical Diagnostics Institute (BDI) features in an article Patients like doing tests for themselves in an Irish Times Health Supplement on 15th January 2013.

Simon’s research has found that while people are reluctant to undergo a test by a doctor or consultant that delivers a diagnosis, they would be far more willing to take a test that would quantify their risk of becoming ill.

The article also features research carried out by Dr. Gregor Kijanka, BDI, on the development of a device for colonoscopy screening to detect colorectal cancer.
