British scientists have created a revolutionary breast-screening system using anti-landmine technology that can detect cancer in seconds. Experts believe the new device, which is also cheaper, can be used on women of any age, unlike current technology. Women under 50 are not routinely screened for breast cancer partly because of the risks from regular doses of ionising radiation from an early age. They also have denser breast tissue, which makes it harder to detect tumours using X-rays. Using radio waves makes it easier to find problems in all tissue. But the most appealing aspect for women is pain-free examinations, with an end to having the breast squeezed between two X-ray plates.
Skip Navigation. The American Cancer Society recommends that women age 40 and older have a 3D mammogram every year. A 3D mammogram is an X-ray of the breast that uses very low levels of radiation. Because of the low radiation level of the exam, there is no increased risk of breast cancer from the procedure. The American Cancer Society compares the amount of radiation dosage from a 3D mammogram to the amount of radiation exposure from a flight between California and New York City.
