One in 12 women will get breast cancer in her lifetime, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). Women in low- and middle-income countries and areas have less access to breast cancer screening and treatment, with approximately half of breast cancer cases and 58% of related deaths occurring in less developed countries.

In Colombia in 2021 there were 86,723 prevalent cases and 7,047 new cases of which 19% were registered in women between 20 and 45 years of age. Between 2020 and 2021 it was the most common type of cancer among the 11 types of cancer prioritized by the national government, it represented 27.99% of new cases and was responsible for the highest number of deaths reported.

Hope and impact for health in Colombia

Cuidalas could significantly impact the health of millions of women, thanks to the iBreastExam device; this uses artificial intelligence technology, it also has 648 tactile sensors, achieving greater sensitivity in the early detection of possible breast lesions, all this is done in real time without emitting radiation or pain, it works in dense breasts, with a prosthetic device, and even in pregnant and lactating women. The iBE mechanism communicates wirelessly with an application installed on a mobile device that will be displayed and stored in real time. The results were recorded as a single file at the end of each scan, and could be sent directly and immediately to the user who took the exam.

"In Colombia and in the world we are an innovative alternative in early detection with the iBreastExam exam, contributing to reducing the limitations of timely detection of breast cancer in its early stages for women who may not have easy access to other methods, due to circumstances such as : location, lack of health insurance, young age, among other factors," shares Heder Xiques Cure Latam CEO

Cuidalas will begin to carry out early detection tests in the cities of Barranquilla, Santa Marta, and Cartagena and little by little it will expand throughout the country.
