Development of non-invasive and non-ionizing techniques for early detection of breast cancer alternative to conventional techniques (X-ray, Positron Emission Tomography -PET Scan-) is a national public Health Priority.
PhotoAcoustic/ThermoAcoustic computed Tomography (PAT/TAT) is an emerging technique that promises cancer screening without ionizing radiation but requires downstream complex processing to locate tumors. MammoScan overcomes PAT/TAT limits and improve the PAT/TAT with the aim to localize tumors more quickly and with greater precision. Innovation is found at the signal processing of the laser output.
