A smart bra that detects Breast Cancer!

Scientists have developed a special bra which allows users to detect early stage breast cancer. The smart bra works using a microwave antennae system device woven into it. The antenna picks up abnormal temperature changes in breast tissue which are associated with cancer cells. The bra will also be able to evaluate the effectiveness of any breast cancer treatment that the wearing is undergoing.

An audible or visual alarm will alert users to the potential need for further medical diagnosis and assessment. More than 44,000 people are diagnosed with breast cancer each year & 80% of all cases occur in over-50s. Early detection will give women more confidence in the preliminary assessment stage & those with breast cancer the highest survival prognosis.

Professor Elias Siores said, “The cancer detection is based on the principle that metabolic activity & vascular circulation in both pre-cancerous tissue and the area surrounding a developing breast cancer is almost always higher than in normal breast tissue. This process results in an increase in regional internal and external temperatures of the breast.”

The microwave antenna has high sensitivity and can detect these temperature variations, which are the earliest indications of the breast cancer and/or a pre-cancerous state of the breast. He further said that the cost of the cancer-detecting bra is not expected to be much more than the average cost of a traditional bra and said there was no health risks associated with this form of passive microwave technology.
