Media coverage for Micrima – December 2011

In November 2011, Micrima released details of its third clinical trial, which showed the MARIA (Multistatic Array processing for Radiowave Image Acquisition) system is not only safer and more comfortable, but is now edging close to detection rates of traditional methods.

Developed by Micrima, a spin-out from Bristol University, the revolutionary new screening technology – developed from a land mine detection project – now takes just eight seconds to provide a three-dimensional breast scan that provides results that are comparable with X-ray mammograms.

However, the MARIA system is not only safer and cheaper than current breast screening methods, it should also provide more reliable results in younger women who are overlooked for screening at present, with the additional benefit of being more comfortable for women undergoing the test.

The team behind Micrima is now raising new funding to help them achieve their goal of commercialising the targeted product – making breast cancer scans as normal as a dental or eye check-up.

Five UK national newspapers covered the story, as well as national TV news (ITV Daybreak), BBC World, and local and regional outlets.
