Horse chestnuts will help doctors spot cancer during screenings, making the overall imaging process more effective, according to a new study.

Researchers revealed that a chemical found in the poisonous horse chestnut called esculin can be used to create a bright and florescent molecule gel to find tumors during MRIs, CT scans and ultrasounds.

The gel improves visibility during these tests, fixing the current problem that makes it difficult to detect a mass due to low light. 

These findings offer better chances of detecting cancerous tumors at the earliest stage, which can lead to a faster diagnosis and save lives.
