Micrima has developed a new breast imaging modality that uses Radio waves MARIA). So, no harmful ionising radiation and no breast compression as part of the scan. In recent trials it is proving particularly effective in dense tissue and area we know current modalities struggle. This makes MARIA ideal for scanning women frequently and from an early age

Despite some of the most established screening programmes globally over half a million women die each year from breast cancer.Yet we know if breast cancer is detected early enough (while it is less than 1cm in size and hasn't spread)survival rates at 5 years are similar to a woman who has never had breast cancer. We think this is reason enough to develop a new breast imaging modality that can be used safely in women from a young age and a frequently as necessary.
