The SureTouch procedure – For Early Detection of Breast Cancer
SureTouch is an FDA cleared breakthrough technology. SureTouch is a safe, accurate breast examination that enables all areas of the breast to be examined while offering immediate digitized results for you and your doctor.
Clinical Breast Exams (CBE) are performed by a health professional to feel for lumps and look for changes in the size, shape, or texture of your breasts. SureTouch works in much the same way. As the clinician gently moves the SureTouch hand-held sensor across the breast and underarm area, you’ll see ultra-sensitive, multi-dimensional color images instantly appear on a screen in real-time, allowing you and your clinician to view the size, sharp, hardness and location of suspicious masses immediately. There’s no waiting time for results.
In addition, unlike a mammogram, a SureTouch exam doesn’t painfully pull or flatten your breast, and the upper outer quadrant, where the majority of breast cancers occur, can be examined easily and without any discomfort.
SureTouch is accurate. Because SureTouch is more sensitive than human touch alone, you can have complete confidence in your results. It can detect masses as small as 5mm – much smaller than the 10mm masses detectable by clinicians during clinical breast exams. The SureTouch examination is not hindered by breast density as are mammography and MRI. Therefore, it is ideal for screening women with dense breast tissue, particularly women under the age of 40.
This new technological advancement is a safe and effective way to increase the accuracy of routine clinical breast exams for the detection of breast cancer and create clear consistent and objective documentation of your results.
There is no harmful radiation, so you have one less thing to worry about.
