MammoCheck is in its 3rd cycle at Cyprus Seeds. It addresses the problem of late breast cancer diagnoses in women who do not undergo mammography examinations or whose examinations are not sufficient, where the result or consequence is a significant reduction in survival rates, leading to more painful and expensive treatment. The technology of MammoCheck will provide the following benefits:

  1. Increase survival rates from breast cancer by empowering women to have access to affordable, risk-free, and accurate examinations anywhere in the world.
  2. Reduce health system expenses on treatment by diagnosing breast cancer early.
  3. Decrease drug usage while freeing up medical resources to target other diseases.
