  • Science behind iBreastExam

    Ingredients: Coffee + Base of Support + Dash of Luck = Innovation

    Invented at Drexel University, Philadelphia.

    iBreastExam's sensors accurately assess & identify tissue elasticity differences between hard & stiff breast tumors versus normal breast tissue. The patented tactile sensor technology using Piezoelectric Sensor Array was invented by the scientists and doctors at Drexel University. It is a novel, quantitative and low-cost elastic modulus (E) sensor that can measure tissue compression and stiffness by top down touching of the skin surface. iBE’s ability to apply a gentle force and measure the subtle displacements electrically, all within the sensor, makes for an ideal ‘electronic palpation’ sensor for in-vivo breast imaging.


    Translational research and commercialization of iBreastExam innovation is backed by R&D funding from:

    Implementation study titled "Health worker led breast examination in rural India using electro-mechanical hand-held breast palpation device" published in the Journal of Cancer Prevention & Current Research on June 20, 2018. Study concludes that "training lay people on the use of the device could potentially provide screening to rural and underserved areas of under-developed nations where women historically have had no access to breast cancer early detection."

    World Journal of Surgical Oncology (2016)

    Clinical study titled "A cost-effective handheld breast scanner for use in low-resource environments: a validation study" published in the World Journal of Surgical Oncology on Oct 28, 2016. iBE correctly identified 66 lesions demonstrating sensitivity of 86% and specificity of 89%.

    Indian Journal of Gynecologic Oncology (2016)

    A major clinical study evaluating iBE™ technology was published in the Indian Journal of Gynecologic Oncology in June 2016. The study showed that iBreastExam device can significantly enhance clinical breast examination Sensitivity (by 19%) while maintaining high Specificity (94%) and Negative Predictive Value (NPV) of 98%. The study concluded that iBreastExam can be a promising tool for early detection of clinically relevant lesions at early stages and also useful in younger women with dense breasts.

    Journal of the American College of Surgeons (2013)

    The first clinical study evaluating iBE technology was published in the Journal of the American College of Surgeons (Volume 216, Issue 6, Pages 1168-1173, June 2013). This study demonstrated that iBE technology could confidently detect invasive lesions/tumors that the physician could not feel with his hands (meaning non-palpable lesions). iBE also performed very well in the younger age group (below 40) in detecting small masses.
