Cancer is a leading cause of death and disability, especially in low resource settings. An emerging answer to improve medical care delivery is point of care technologies that enable convenient and immediate healthcare at or near the patient's bedside. These point of care devices are based on enabling tools such as lab-on-a-chip (LOC), biosensors, portable ultrasound imaging, hand held scanners and communication devices. Most are portable and useful outside hospital settings. Such technologies can be adapted to bring cancer detection, diagnostics, monitoring and treatment to the patient, rather than the other way around, and are especially useful in global health settings.
