A non-invasive medical diagnosis is any diagnostic procedure that does not physically breach the skin or enter the body deeply through an external orifice. Over the past century, active research and development in the field of diagnostic systems has given birth to an excess of diagnostic devices, most of which are non-invasive in nature. In the past decade, there has been a gradual shift in the focus of research towards development of small hand held systems that can, to a large extent replace the costly devices available at pathological centers. This can make the next generation medicine considerably cheaper and affordable especially for developing countries like India.
