A SURE WAY TO DETECT BREAST CANCER
SureTouch™ Visual Mapping System Digital Breast Exam - Visualising the Sense of Touch.
Medical Tactile Imaging (UK) Ltd has introduced new technology designed to help doctors and women with the early detection of breast cancer. The technology, the SureTouch™ Visual Mapping System gives doctors their first ever opportunity to electronically document the clinical Breast Exam in an accurate and reproducible format. SureTouch™ is able to effectively map dense breast tissue, something that up until now has been difficult to do.
“SureTouch™ offers all women aged 18 and over the opportunity to have an accurate, sensitive, pain and radiation-free Breast exam by their own GP or screening centre” says UK Director Chris Blakey.
“The technology has been developed in America over the past five years and has been proven to be over 94 per cent accurate in recognising malignant tumours in all breast tissue during clinical trials and in effect can reduce the number of needless benign biopsies."
SureTouch™ uses tactile sensing technology to measure the reactive pressures generated by changes in breast tissue caused by developing lesions.
“For women under 40, SureTouch offers for the first time an accurate and comfortable screening solution,” he says. It also offers clinicians a vital addition to their armament in the early detection of breast cancer, to support assessment and to view progress of treatment.
From a medicological perspective it is an invaluable aid in electronically documenting the Clinical Breast Exam. The SureTouch™ system is relatively inexpensive and can be used by trained medical and nursing staff.
