Medical Tactile, Inc. Announces a 3G-Wireless System for Breast Cancer Screening
Date:5/23/2012

SAN DIEGO, May 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Medical Tactile, Inc. (MTI), with the support of The Pre-Mammogram Foundation and Qualcomm Incorporated, today announced that they have developed a pre-commercial SureTouch™ Wireless system that uses 3G-enabled tactile sensor technology for breast cancer screening. 

According to a publication funded by the Susan G. Komen Foundation, 1.6 million women worldwide were diagnosed with breast cancer in 2010 and 425,000 women died from the disease. Although early detection is the best means to a good prognosis for breast cancer, developing countries are particularly affected because 80 percent of women 30-70 years old live in these regions of the world, while only 10 percent of mammogram procedures are conducted there.

The National Breast Cancer Foundation estimates that approximately 70 percent of newly diagnosed breast cancers are found by women through their sense of touch during regular self-exams. Unfortunately, the average-size lump found through self-exam is approximately 2.5cm, while the average-size lump found by trained clinicians using palpation is approximately 1cm.

The SureTouch system can detect masses as small as 0.5cm by using tactile sensor technology, also known as stress elastography, to measure the reactive pressures generated by cancerous tissue, which can be more than 100 times harder than normal tissue. The current SureTouch system has been cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for documenting the Clinical Breast Exam (CBE) in the United States and is already used in China, India, Turkey and sixteen other countries as a screening tool for breast cancer. The SureTouch Wireless system can be used effectively to diagnose women of all ages and is designed primarily for use in medical centers by low-skill technicians to provide affordable, radiation-free, comfortable and clinically effective breast exams. 3G wireless connectivity also enables remote evaluat
