Screening advancemen­ts


Biomedical engineer Judit Giró Benet, from Spain, has created the world’s first at-home breast cancer screening exam.

Judit came up with the idea after her mother had a breast cancer diagnosis and realising 40 per cent of women skip mammograms.

The test, called The Blue Box, does an analysis of urine, transmits the results for testing and provides a fast diagnosis sent to an app on the user’s phone.
