UBT SRL (Umbria Bioengineering Technologies), born as academic Spin Off of the Department of Physics and Geology of the University of Perugia, Italy, is a biomedical company which develops and commercialises a portfolio of innovative medical imaging devices based on cutting-edge microwaves technology instead of dangereous ionizing radiation (X-Rays).
UBT's microwave imaging technology achieves the accuracy of X-Rays without the risks and limitations associated with ionizing radiations. The innovative imaging technology employs low power microwaves – non-ionizing electromagnetic radiations, such as those commonly used in mobile communications.
UBT has so far developed two different products (patented):
- MammoWave. MammoWave is a novel X-Rays free mammogram for breast cancer screening.
- BrainWave. BrainWave is a novel device for brain stroke detection and classification.
