A Breakthrough Monochromatic X-Ray Technology

Advanced Technology

A spin-off from astrophysics research, our patented, breakthrough monochromatic x-ray mammography instrument offers an unprecedented combination of sensitivity, spatial resolution, low-dose, and ease of use.

Early Detection

It promises to overcome many of the problems with the detection of cancerous lesions in dense breasts. This 2-D and 3-D diagnostic tool will serve a very large group of women who go undiagnosed and who are most at risk for developing breast cancer.

Less Radiation

It will reduce screening doses by more than 85% for ALL women, allowing annual exams that substantially reduce lifetime radiation exposure.

Widespread Use

Instruments incorporating this technology will cost no more to produce than units currently used in breast care clinics.
