The handheld smartphone device which could spot cancer

A £240 ($400) handheld device which can analyse potential tumours is being developed in Tel Aviv.

The Mobile OCT device consists of a smartphone to take the images, a lens, some lights and a plastic handle.

The images are assessed by the device's operator and are then uploaded for review by a professional.

BBC Click's Spencer Kelly reports.
