As India stares at breast cancer epidemic, CURA launches robotic device for early detection

As India stares at breast cancer epidemic, CURA launches robotic device for early detection

Chennai, Oct 31 (UNI) India was staring at a breast cancer epidemic and breast screening was virtually non-existent in India as one in 28 women get breast cancer and one in two die due to late detection, making survival one of the lowest in the world. In a bid to provide a solution for early detection, CURA Healthcare today launched the world’s first robot-assisted digital 360 degree breast thermography device, an early breast cancer warning system for all age groups. CURA’s illumina 360 deg could detect breast anomalies several years ahead of prevalent breast cancer screening methods without causing pain due to compression, without non-ionizing radiation and without human touch. Illumina 360 deg was designed, developed and manufactured in India with the support of BIRAC, Department of Biotechnology. “With illumina 360 deg, we believe we have removed most of the barriers to early breast screening--pain, discomfort, radiation safety, and breast exposure', CURA Healthcare President and CEO M Bala told reporters here. He said it detects disease years earlier than today’s conventional screening modalities and it was addressable without invasive and painful procedures. 'We believe, our illumina can be a big game changer in breast healthcare and with it mass breast screening from early ages can be a reality now in India”,” he added. MORE UNI GV 1542
