SOFTSCAN

Bronze
2004

Client: ART Advanced Research Technologies Inc, Canada

Designed to address a critical and unmet need in breast tissue analysis, this unit provides functional information about tumors using an attractive table-like solution, easing the procedure for patients. The functional system is an aquarium-type device that stabilizes the breast in a milk-colored liquid in order to do the scan and the tabletop is integrated in a visually soft product.

  • A laser sends pulses through the patient's breast in a programmed pattern.
  • The data is channeled to a computer for processing.
