The company had been carrying out trials to test the effectiveness of the device, initially known as APX, over the past few years and said that ZedScan is able to accurately diagnose cervical cancer based on the differences in electrical resistance between normal, pre-cancerous, and cancerous tissue. Apart from being able to accurately diagnose the presence of cancer, a recent independent health economics report has found the device to be cost-effective for healthcare systems, the company said.
