Revolutionary Breast Cancer Screening Device

A Utah company has come up with such a revolutionary new device for screening breast cancer that it's getting a rare government grant of almost three million dollars to continue development. Right now, this new screening and diagnostic device has everything going for it. It requires no compression, no squeezing of the breasts, no discomfort to the woman. And, it's radiation free. The National Institutes of Health is so impressed that it's giving a Utah company called Techniscan 2.8 million dollars a rare event, and one of NIH's largest small business grants. Why so much interest? This system allows the patient to comfortably lie face down. The breast is suspended in warm water while the ultrasound scanner rotates in a circle, producing detailed 3-D images. --Click the title of this post to read the full article from its source--
