Breast cancer affects one in every 8 women. Conventional diagnostics (e.g. mammography) is unpleasant, inaccurate (~70% false positives) and therefore costly (cost/biopsy ~ $1,200). Also, abnormal growth detection is only possible from a certain size onwards. Women with dense breast tissue (high prevalence in Asia) have a 4x to 6x higher propensity for breast cancer; mammography accuracy greatly reduced with density (down to 48% for densest tissue).

Early detection improves health of patients, gives the personal environment to adapt with far lesser negative implications and saves health care cost.

Let's address this together.
