The early detection of cancer biomarkers in blood vessels through nanosensors is crucial for timely medical intervention. These nanosensors, circulating within the blood vessels, detect biomarkers and transmit their findings to the external environment via a gateway. The strategic placement of the gateway within the human body aims to minimize the delay in the early detection of critical infections by mobile nanosensors, ultimately improving healthcare outcomes. In this work, we analyzed how the placement of the gateway influences the detection of various infection locations by nanosensors. Through a Monte Carlo simulation, we deployed 1000 nanosensors circulating in the blood vessels over a duration of 1000 seconds. The findings demonstrated that positioning the gateway at the heart significantly reduced detection time and enhanced the detection ratio, irrespective of the infection locations. This analysis underscores the importance of gateway placement in maximizing the effectiveness of the nanosensor network for detecting abnormalities across various infection locations.
