There has been a new development in breast cancer diagnosis in India. The device developed in the country has an accuracy rate of 90 percent.
It was tested on an average of 75,000 women in 29 cities of the country.
Indian entrepreneur Geetha Manjunath stated that thanks to the thermal imaging in the device, “tumors” can be determined by temperature measurements obtained from the chest area and these data are interpreted through artificial intelligence.
Indian women prefer the device
The fact that it performs examinations without physical contact makes the device preferred by Indian women.
With the device, which is stated to have a 90 percent accuracy rate, approximately 75,000 women in 29 cities of India have been examined so far.
Approximately 685,000 women died from the disease.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), breast cancer was detected in approximately 2.3 million women in 2020, while approximately 685,000 women died from the disease in the same year.
It is stated that the main problem in India, which is one of the countries with the highest rate of death from breast cancer, is that the disease cannot be detected early.
