The Breast Tissue Screening Bra acts as a continuous monitoring system for tumors

  • First Warning Systems‘ smart sports bra, the Breast Tissue Screening Bra, is like a continuous monitoring system for breast cancer that could be more effective than mammograms. CNET reports that a sensor in the bra measures cell temperature changes associated with blood vessel growth that feeds tumors. Pattern recognition software then processes this data and helps to identify changes that could signal a developing tumor. In clinical trials with 650 women, the smart bra has been able to detect the presence of tumors 6 years before traditional imaging systems can. It also showed a 92.1% level of accuracy at correctly classifying them, which is much higher than routine mammograms (70%). First Warning Systems plans to commercialize the system in Europe next year and in the U.S. in 2014, pending regulatory approval.
