TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - University of Arizona researchers are trying to identify subtle tissue changes that could provide early diagnoses of ovarian cancer.

The university says Professor Jennifer Barton is leading a federally funded two-year project to identify imaging biomarkers for the deadly gynecological cancer.

Barton is a professor in biomedical engineering and several other academic disciplines.

She says ovarian cancer is difficult to detect early because of its location deep inside the body, few early symptoms and a lack of effective screening techniques.

The university’s team includes researchers in physiology, medical imaging and obstetrics and gynecology.
