In the national capital, an advanced digital breast cancer detecting machine with the capability to see the lesions in breasts with much more clarity than ever before was unveiled.

The mammography machine 'Amulet' by Fuji films is claimed to be India's first low dose resolution system.

Speaking at the launch, Bharatiya Janata Party leader Sushma Swaraj said: "Every woman should be aware about ever growing breast cancer and need to get done mammography to detect the cancer and fight against it."

This machine would prove to be helpful in the fight against the disease as it uses artificial intelligence algorithms to assist the radiologist in detecting abnormalities that would not normally be seen by the naked eyes.

"With the help of 50 micron resolution system, we have the capability to see the lesions in breasts with much more clarity than ever before," said Harsh Mahajan of Mahajan Imaging.

"The Computer Aided Diagnostics (CAD) system installed with the machine helps the radiologist in detecting abnormalities that would not normally be seen by the naked eyes," he said.

There is not much difference in the cost of mammography using Amulet and it will continue to cost around Rs.3,000 per person.

In India, around 20-30 women per 100,000 population develop breast cancer at some point in their lives.
