PAMMOTH Progress

PAMMOTH brings together applied physicists, technology developers, mathematicians, algorithm developers, ultrasound detection experts, laser specialists, epidemiologists and radiologists to work on a new generation system for imaging the breast using both photoacoustics and ultrasound. Academia, Industry and the Clinic from 6 different countries in Europe are represented strongly in PAMMOTH.
The PAMMOTH consortium’s objective is to develop, validate and begin exploitation of a dedicated breast imaging device for a significant impact in breast cancer diagnosis. The consortium aims to make the imaging device such for all populations of women, with short time intervals between positive screening and diagnosis, having high through-put, possessing no carcinogenic potential and causing no pain and discomfort to patients.
