Watch this insightful TED Talk by our Founder and CEO, Mihir Shah and learn how iBreastExam is making breast cancer early detection possible for women everywhere, how it works and why it matters!
"Cancer is not a death sentence. Today I am going to talk to you about a certain cancer, which, it is believed, is most prevalent in India. Breast cancer. It is estimated that in India, one in 28 women are likely to be diagnosed with breast cancer during their lifetime. Since this form of cancer is generally detected late, we are able to save only one out of two patients. In developed countries, a mammogram machine is used for early detection of breast cancer. We need a radiologist doctor for this. And India has just one such doctor for every 100,000 patients. So what can be done to ensure that every woman can have access to early detection?"
