Non-Invasive Cholesterol Tests


Researchers in India lead by N.R. Shanker and his colleagues have been looking at a novel way of detecting cholesterol levels in patients without requiring a blood sample.  The unusual technique involves taking a photograph of the patients finger crease region and comparing them with images in the database of other hands where the levels of cholesterol are known.

The database of known levels includes information on age groups, making it easier to match like for like.

Their research suggests that the cholesterol levels can be determined this way.
