Flexible wearable antenna system for quicker breast cancer detection than mammography

Breast cancer is most common type of cancer detected in women across the globe and it has steadily emerged as the top cancer killers in women. It is believed that early detection of breast cancer increases survival rate among breast cancer patients, but unavailable sources for early cancer detection have been a vital reason why millions of women have lost their lives. Now, a team of researchers at the Indiana University – Purdue University Indianapolis have developed a bra-like wearable antenna system, with a motive to help women detect breast cancer early by regular screening.
