The team hopes to have the device in production within three years.

Executive Chairman of Micrimia Roy Johnston said that MARIA which stands for Multistatic Array processing for Radio wave Image Acquisition, is made from 60 antennas which create a complete scan of the breast in eight seconds.

A team at Micrimia from Bristol University in Britain says that the new screening tool, called “MARIA“, is safer and more comfortable than traditional mammogram X-rays. They said that it can be used on women of any age, unlike current technology.

The team said that they have already carried out three successful trials with 300 women at Frenchay and Southmead hospitals.

They also claimed that results from the trials showed a diagnostic success rate of 80 per cent.

Scientists claim that now a simple test can “diagnose breast cancer” in women in eight seconds. They claim to have developed it from a technology that is used to detect land mines.
