Resumen:
Una pyme búlgara con amplia experiencia en diseño y fabricación de nuevos sistemas electrónicos de alta frecuencia, sistemas con control integrado y sensores basados en microondas ha desarrollado un nuevo dispositivo de detección del cáncer de mama. El principio operativo se basa en la detección de emisiones electromagnéticas térmicas desde el tumor. Este dispositivo puede emplearse en zonas remotas con difícil acceso a equipos médicos. El sensor no emite radiación y es inocuo tanto para los pacientes como para el personal sanitario. Gracias a su implementación sencilla, puede utilizarse por médicos generalistas. La empresa busca socios con el fin de establecer acuerdos de cooperación técnica y en materia de investigación.


Details

Tittle:
Innovative breast cancer screening sensor.
Summary:
A Bulgarian SME with extensive experience in the design and fabrication of novel high-frequency electronic systems and systems with embedded control and microwave-based sensors has developed an innovative device for breast cancer screening. The working principle is based on the detection of the thermal electromagnetic emissions from the tumor. It can be used for screening in areas with difficult access to medical facilities. Technical agreements and research cooperation agreements are sought.
Description:
The company has broad experience in the R-Y-D of innovative products and systems, including hardware, firmware and software, in the field of microwave and sensor technology and wireless communication. It also has long-term experience in successful international projects.

Breast cancer is perceived as the most dangerous oncological disease for women, as it has the highest mortality and incidence rate. The World Health Organisation recommends screening as the most effective procedure for increasing the success rate of the treatment as it allows early detection. The currently available screening methods are mammography, which is an X-ray image of the breast tissue, ultrasonic exam, and manual exam. The mammography requires expensive and bulky apparatus, and emits ionising radiation, which is potentially harmful, especially for people prone to cancer development. The other two methods do not show sufficient precision.

The company has developed a portable passive breast cancer screening sensor which operates by detecting the thermal electromagnetic emissions from the cancerous tissue. It can be used in remote areas where there is difficult access to medical equipment. The sensor can be connected to a mobile device which further reduces costs and makes it easier to use. The sensor emits no radiation and is therefore completely harmless both for the patients and for the medical staff. It is easy to use which makes it suitable for implementation by general practitioners.

The SME seeks technical cooperation agreements with companies and research units for medical testing of the device which will give a full description of the medical characteristics and speed up different processes, adapting it adaptation to the potential needs; research cooperation agreements with research partners and industrial partners for joint project development in the field of medical technology and medical equipment; cancer early screening and prevention, quality of life and safety.
Advantages and Innovations:
- the innovative screening sensor is portable and ensures easy access to a vital screening technology; it has no analogue;
- it is very compatible to available screening methods and technology in terms of expenses;
- its principle of operation ensures inoffensive screening for the patients and the medical staff;
- the device is passive and therefore, completely harmless.
