Principle of operation of Braster Pro
Compared to normal cells, cancerous cells have an increased metabolism and create a dense capillary network. Those two processes result in the creation of higher temperature focal points, visible on contact thermography.
Thanks to a special liquid-crystal matrix, the BRASTER®PRO is able to register breast areas with a higher temperature, which may be a sign of alarming malignant changes. Artificial intelligence algorithms analyze thermal images of breasts searching for thermal and structural asymmetries. If such asymmetries are detected, the patient should be referred for further diagnostic examinations.
The contact thermography method used in BRASTER®PRO was recognized by the Polish Society of Gynecologists and Obstetricians as a complementary examination to mammography or breast ultrasound.
The advantages of the BRASTER®PRO
Possibility to perform a reliable breast examination in every doctor's office
Efficacy of the method has been proven in observational studies (81.5% sensitivity and 87% specificity)*
The examination is painless and safe, since it does not use radiation
The intuitive app guides you step by step through the examination and standardizes the examination process
The examination takes about 15 minutes
The patented thermographic matrix registers even the smallest changes in the breast, starting at 3 mm in size
Efficacy of the method is irrespective of patient’s age and breast tissue type
Complementing standard diagnostic examinations with the BRASTER®PRO exam increases the chance of early detection of suspicious changes
