To improve breast cancer survival rates you have to detect it as soon as possible, but mammography tests (mammograms) aren’t exactly ideal to fulfill this goal because they use radiation, they are uncomfortable and sometimes painful – they are an imperfect tool.
But now we have a new Israeli solution developed by an electro-optical engineer – Boaz Arnon. He invented a game changing device for early detection of breast cancer. The device is called RUTH, after his mother, who has succumbed to the disease in 2004.
The device, which is produced by Arnon’s company Real Imaging, uses a new platform he called MIRA. It’s built on principles from existing technologies and mathematics, and it enables functional quantitative analysis of 3D and infrared signals emitted from cancerous and benign breast tissue.
This solution isn’t sensitive to age or breast density and it works without any radiation.
