Micrima has raised further funding towards its development of a breast cancer scanning system. This will allow the next stage of development and commercialisation to take place, with the launch of a seventh generation of the Maria radio wave breast scanning system later this year.
The system uses no ionising radiation and requires no breast compression. In clinical trials in diagnostic clinics it has proven effective at accurately identifying cancer and, according to Micrima, is better than the gold standard in dense tissue. It will also offer new functionality in a density score as well as improvement in accuracy and ergonomics.
Chairman Nick Randall said: “This investment will allow us to move the company into the next phase with a system that has a place in a clinical workflow; there is more exciting functionality to come as soon as clinical data collection can recommence.”
