A wearable bra claimed to detect breast cancer at an early stage is all set to enter clinical trials. What is so special about this bra? Well, it is fitted with 16 sensors, which gather data thermodynamic data from the breast, which is analyzed using an algorithm. The bra designed by a company in Navada will be put to test in a clinical trial to be held at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
If this product does well in the clinical trails, it could be a huge step forward in screening breast cancers. The developers claim that it will be useful in females with dense breast tissue as well. Mammography is not sensitive in ladies with dense breast tissue and this system could be advantageous in such patients.
The company plans to launch the product in India in Jan 2015 and FDA approval would follow in late 2015.
