Mobile Cancer Screening Device
The corporation, MobileODT has designed a battery-powered, hand-held colposcope (Mobile Cancer Screening Device) called the EVA System, which can take high-quality images of the cervix.
MobileODT worked with the National Cancer Institute to develop a machine learning algorithm, called automatic visual evaluation (AVE), that can produce an accurate diagnosis in minutes.
A prospective, multi center pilot study that scientists conducted in Korea showed that the device is more than 90 percent accurate.
Yael Misrahi — head of global partnerships at MobileODT — outlined the product at Future Healthcare. MNT caught up with her after the event, and she explained that one of the primary benefits of this system is that “it is handheld and can be used by a nonexpert healthcare provider.”
Because the device is based on smartphone technology, it is user-friendly and includes a “remote consultation feature to consult experts either in real-time or during a quality assurance check.”
