About us

Our mission:

To detect more instances of breast cancer, earlier

To achieve this mission, we are on a journey to ultimately provide a screening device. So far, we have proven the ability to identify regions in the breast that correspond to invasive breast cancer in all tissue densities, particularly in dense tissue, an area we know today’s screening tools struggle.


How we achieve our mission

We make MARIA, a breast scanning system that is comfortable for the patient and can be used frequently and from a much younger age in order to detect breast cancer earlier. The whole team at Micrima come to work every day because we believe there has to be a better way to detect this disease earlier and prevent some of these deaths.
