BREAST INFRARED IMAGING

A Patient-Specific Computerized Approach Coupling Harmless Infrared Imaging and Numerical Simulation Based on Mathematical Analysis

  • Breast Cancer Detection and Localization

  • Most common cancer in women and second leading cause of cancer death (after lung cancer)

  • American Cancer Society estimates 266,000 new cases and 41,000 deaths annually; 12% of women will get breast cancer during lifetime

  • Early detection is the best weapon in our arsenal to fight this cancer; once it has spread, treatments are palliative rather than curative

  • Infrared Imaging coupled with an Analytical Approach is used for cancerous tumor detection and localization

  • Non-radiative, non-intrusive, accurate and low cost technology without patient discomfort

  • An ideal complement to Mammography as an adjunctive screening modality
