The TRIMprob (Tissue Resonance InterferoMeter Probe) is a portable system for non-invasive diagnosis of biological diseases invented by Italian physicist Clarbruno Vedruccio.

It consist in a computer controlled radio frequency interferometer detecting differences in electromagnetic properties in cancerous tissue.

It had been proved to have high accuracy rate (93%) for the early diagnosis of cancer.

In 2003 the Italian defense electronics company Galileo Avionica start the production of TRIMprob under license.

BUT the production stop abruptly in 2008 because the project wasn't "remunerative enough" for (putting) more investment.

This is a shame, because this device, if mass produced, could save many lives.
