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:
Large Scale Implementations
