Spreading awareness and prevention
Breast cancer is the most frequent neoplasia in the female population. It is estimated that 1 out of 8 women, in their lifetime, will have to deal with it.
Moreover, in Italy, 13% of the cases concerns women under 40.
Currently, concrete help is offered bt SABREEN (Smart Assistant for BREast sceENing), the winner of the fourth edition of GoBeyond in the “best project for the Collectivity” category.
It’s a system designed by HTLab ( Healthcare Technology Lab), the innovative startup founded by vEyes, a non-profit company established in 2012 with the aim to design and develop technological tools for people with visual impairments, as well as innovative clinical diagnostic tools.
SABREEN allows to perform an ultrasound test trough a re-engineered probe connected to an Android smartphone. The tool is integrated with an artificial intelligence system that can to create a 3D model of the breast internal structure.
The device is therefore able to find the presence of suspicious masses, reporting them to a breast care center within the SABREEN network. In this way, a specialist can inspect the material sent by the neutral net, validate it and, if necessary, report to the patient the presence of an anomaly.
