breast IT has created a portable glove with piezoelectric crystals on the palm of the hand that produce ultrasound to screen for breast cancer. The device can be used by individuals or nurses after a few minutes instructions as part of a regular breast cancer check up. The results are analysed by an algorithm inside the application instantly, and if need be, can be sent to radiologists via a cloud system for a consultancy in under a week. Screening for breast cancer patients will be cheaper and more accessible.
