Researchers Create New Technology to ID Aggressive Breast Cancer

Researchers at the University of Michigan have developed a new technology to tell whether or not stage 0 breast cancer will be aggressive or non-aggressive. This new innovation is called Biomarker Ratio Imaging Microscopy (BRIM). BRIM technology combines traditional pathology techniques with mathematical analysis to determine the levels of biomarkers in a tumor – whether or not the breast cancer needs aggressive treatment. Study author Howard R. Petty, professor of ophthalmology, visual sciences, microbiology, and immunology, stated that women with stage 0 breast cancer (otherwise…
