Contact thermography

Contact thermography is a method that allows functional imaging of organ function. The basis of this method is the dermothermic effect, which consists in depicting on the skin surface changes occurring during the formation of new, pathological blood vessels (neoangiogenesis process). This process involves a local increase in temperature around the lesion focus, which manifests itself on the surface of the breast skin and is recorded by liquid crystal matrices in the form of colored images.

BI-RADS SCALE

Standardization system for describing breast diagnostic tests:

Developed by the American Radiological Society, the BI-RADS scale is a classification of changes visible in an ultrasound, mammography or MRI exam. It defines the terminology to be used in examination descriptions, the descriptions’ structure and the final evaluation categories with suggested diagnostic algorithms for the physicians and recommendations for patients. Based on the result according to the BI-RADS classification, the physician makes a decision on how to proceed, recommending observation or earlier imaging, or giving a referral for a biopsy in order to verify changes in histopathology.

Mammography – indications and procedure

Mammography is radiological breast examination. Mammography involves construction of a series of images of the mammary gland using X-rays. It is a very sensitive examination, allowing detection of changes in the breast structure down to a millimetre scale. Mammography is a safe technique and allows for an early diagnosis of breast cancer without the need for anaesthetization.

BRCA1 and BRCA2 gene mutation – treatment and prophylaxis

Mutations in the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes lead to excessive cell division. The cell growth may result in the development of breast cancer or ovarian cancer. Mutations in the BRCA1 and BRCA2 gene indicate inherited breast cancer predisposition.

Genetic testing for BRCA mutations is available and includes collection of a blood sample at the health care centre / hospital and sending the sample to a licenced laboratory. Genetic testing is available for women with numerous breast and/or ovarian cancer cases in their family or with a family history of cases of breast and/or ovarian cases in women aged below 40.

The decision on genetic testing should be well-thought-out after consultation with a specialist. BRCA gene mutations detected in genetic tests may cause a serious psychological burden to the patient, which may manifest into cancer phobia, i.e. paralysing fear of cancer.

About us

Company details

We started work on the Braster device in 2007, when we developed a breakthrough method of using liquid crystals and contact thermography for breast cancer prophylaxis. The Braster System – in-home breast examination system was developed as a result of 9 years of work by a number of eminent Polish researchers from the best Polish universities and institutes, headed by Henryk Jaremek, PhD and Jacek Stępień, PhD. Over the years, our project has substantially changed and evolved. Since October 2016 we offer women intuitive device of the highest quality for breast self-examination at home. In 2018 we started working on a solution for professionals that could be used in medical centers during patient’s standard visit.
