The primary aim of this project is to improve early-stage diagnostics for breast cancer. The goal is to develop a 3D breast X-ray computer tomograph (breast CT for short) for the female breast, characterized by higher sensitivity in the early detection of breast cancer, as well as by greater patient comfort. Every step from the imaging of microcalcifications and the differential diagnosis of lesions with dynamic CT, through to image-guided biopsy can all be performed on one device during just one patient appointment.
Better detection and differentiation between benign and malignant tumors can reduce the number of wrong diagnoses and enable the faster detection and treatment of malignant tumors. It is hoped that this will lead to a significant fall in the death rate among breast cancer patients.
