CURA Healthcare launches 360 degree Breast Thermography System
Chennai: CURA Healthcare announced today the launch of robot-assisted digital 360 degree breast thermography device, an early breast cancer warning system for all age groups.
Illumina 360 degree images allow doctors to differentiate between normal and abnormal breast tissues that may develop or be caused by cysts, estrogen dominance, or fibrous tissue and potentially cancerous tissuesh, claims CURA. It is designed, developed and manufactured in India with the support of BIRAC, Department of Biotechnology, Government of India.
“With illumina 360 degree, we believe we have removed most of the barriers to early breast screening – Pain, discomfort, radiation safety, and breast exposure. IIllumina 360 degree detects disease years earlier than today’s conventional screening modalities and when it is addressable without invasive and painful procedures,” said M Bala, President and CEO of CURA Healthcare.
“We are pleased to announce the birth of one such innovation - CURA’s illumina 360 degree, to bridge one of the biggest gaps in the country – addressing the biggest killer disease of the country – Breast Cancer. We are proud to have been part of innovating this disruptive innovation” said Dr Renu Swaroop, Managing Director, Bio-technology Industry Research Assistance Council (BIRAC), Department of Bio-Technology, Government of India.
The advanced ultra-sensitive infrared camera of illumina 360 degree aided by an advanced robot can sense the variations through varying temperature patterns and help detect tissue changes over time. The extreme sensitivity and 360 degree coverage together with advanced digital processing can help detect the earliest thermal signs suggesting pre-cancerous stage of breast tissues or the presence of a tumor that is not yet large enough to be detected by physical examinations, and structural imaging tools.
Illumina 360 degree produces these early warning signs at over 97% accuracy without compressing the breast, radiation and any discomfort to the patient making it very attractive for women of all age groups. It can be used for unlimited, repeated exams as it does not emit radiation and is safe.
