Cambridge , TeraView In Breast Cancer Imaging Entry Strategy

Cambridge Consultants is working with TeraView to establish the best market entry strategy for its advanced breast cancer imaging technology. The HiDEF camera platform from Helinet/Cineflex.

Cambridge Consultants Ltd. (Cambridge, UK) and TeraView Ltd. (Cambridge, UK) are working together with leading international surgeons to establish the best market entry strategy for TeraView's advanced imaging technology for breast cancer. TeraView is currently conducting a series of studies with Addenbrooke's Hospital (Cambridge, UK), imaging healthy and cancerous tissue.

According to TeraView, it is the world's first company devoted solely to the exploitation of Terahertz radiation, which lies between microwave and infrared, and represents the last unexplored region of the electromagnetic spectrum. Terahertz radiation is able to image in 3D, provide spectroscopic information and can distinguish between diseased and normal tissue. The potential benefits of the system, according to the company, include improved detection rates of unhealthy tissue during surgery, leading to a decrease in repeat surgery and morbidity.

This technology has other applications, including security screening to detect weapons and non-metallic items hidden beneath clothing, which are not ordinarily picked up with conventional X-rays.
