Electrical impedance scanning (EIS) is a promising tool for early detection of breast cancer in women younger than 45 years old, a new study has found. The research included 1,163 women who were categorized according to breast cancer risk, based on clinical and biopsy findings. The women were also evaluated using EIS. The study found that EIS was rarely positive for women with the lowest risk of breast cancer but was often positive in women with the greatest breast cancer risk.
