Early Detection Saves Lives.
Breast cancer is the most common cancer amongst women worldwide, carrying with it a significant burden of mortality and morbidity, particularly with late stage detection.
Breast screening is at the frontline of in the effort to detect cancer early. However, mammographic density obscures radiologists' ability to detect changes in mammograms over time that are indicative of developing cancers.
Women with extremely dense breasts are
at substantially higher risk of having cancer than those with fatty breasts and
are flagged for more frequent follow-up screening mammograms or can sometimes be triaged for follow-up diagnostic imaging.
Densitas Inc. is a start-up medical technology company focused on improving early breast cancer detection by providing a fully automated solution that measures mammographic density in the breast cancer screening context.About >
