Increasing awareness about breast density and the associated breast cancer risk is significantly changing the breast cancer screening landscape. A recent survey conducted by the 'Are You Dense' advocacy group revealed that 93% of participants would choose to have additional screening if they were informed of the presence of dense breast tissue, even if this additional screening produced false alarms .
NoTouch BreastScan is an FDA cleared (Feb. '12) medical innovation. The indication for use is: "adjunctive screening test for the detection of breast cancer by measuring various temperature parameters from the surface of the breast" .
In a recent clinical study, NoTouch BreastScan successfully detected early stage breast cancers with 87% sensitivity . In 2010, a clinical study revealed that the combined sensitivity of NoTouch BreastScan and mammography in women under 50 is an encouraging 89% . Click here to review the latest clinical data.
