A powerful tool in giving an early edge in the ability to monitor blood vessels, identify abnormal tissue and spot potential tumours/lesions. Some small cancers may grow to become life threatening, others may remain dormant or even disappear.
Any cancer detected by BREAST-i™ is likely to be serious since it is detected by associated angiogenesis, implying that it is already in the exponentially growing phase. It must be realised that X-rays and light are monitoring different features of the breast, tissue density and neovascularisation, respectively. Should a shadow or cluster be spotted then medical consultation should always be pursued.
