A recent article by Abigail Klein Leichman in Israel 21C discusses an exciting new technology in the detection of breast cancer. This "Israeli device now in clinical trials avoids radiation, guesswork, discomfort and other downsides that make mammography an imperfect screening tool."
The device, named RUTH, uses technology that "is not sensitive to age or breast density, and works without radiation," Arnon tells ISRAEL21c. "Results will not have to be interpreted by human eyes...The algorithms provide unprecedented accuracy, as Real Imaging has demonstrated in blind studies."
Arnon explains, "Our sensitivity results show 90 percent accuracy for women of all ages." By comparison, mammography usually is about 80 percent accurate, and not even that high in younger patients.
The entire procedure takes only a few minutes.
Very exciting, don't you think?
