The screening will be free during the month of October and will be conducted by a female technician.
October being Breast Cancer Awareness month, artificial intelligence based health-tech company NIRAMAI and Way2Health Diagnostics will conduct free breast cancer screening for women throughout the month. The screening technology by NIRAMAI is unique in being non-touch and non-radiation.
From October 1 to October 31, women can get themselves screened for breast cancer at any of the following Way2Health centres in Mumbai, Navi Mumbai and Thane areas, including Seawoods, Nerul, Vashi, Kharghar, Kamothe, KoparKhairane, Ghansoli, Panvel, Thane, Vikhroli, Bandra, Kandivili and Marine Lines. The screening will be free during the month of October and will be conducted by a female technician.
Dr. Rachna Tardeja, Consultant Radiologist & Founder Director, Way2Health Diagnostics, Mumbai, said, "We are excited to partner with NIRAMAI who has brought in innovative non-touch, non-radiation, technology to make breast cancer screening easily accessible to all women who otherwise generally shy away from it. We are offering this screening complimentary for all women to enable access to the underserved as well."
NIRAMAI (Non-Invasive Risk Assessment with Machine Intelligence) is a health-tech startup that has developed an early breast cancer detection technology that is radiation free and non-invasive.
Nidhi Mathur, COO & Co-founder, Niramai, said, "As part of Niramai's community screening initiative, we partner with organisations like Way2Health Diagnostics that have extensive outreach and focus on women’s health, to jointly conduct breast health screenings. Our goal is to screen 1 million women by 2022."
"Bringing the service to the door-step of women is an important feature of preventive screening that we believe Way2Health Diagnostics will help us achieve in Mumbai," Nidhi Mathur added.
