 Project objective

Breast cancer is a global challenge representing the leading cause of death for women worldwide: according to the estimates of WHO, there were over 2 million new cases in 2018, with a projection of more than 3 million individuals by 2040. It is usually diagnosed at an advanced stage while early detection greatly increases the chances for successful treatment. The 2 components of early detection are mass screening and early diagnosis. Currently, most diffuse population-based screening programs for breast cancer are based on mammography. Weighing the harms against the benefits of these programs has led WHO not to recommend mammography screening in women less than 50 years of age. Mammography has been the medical industry’s “gold standard” breast cancer screening tool for nearly four decades. Today a number of adverse effects, backed up by mounting scientific evidence, are limiting the use of mammography as a mass screening device. LOUISA-3D uses safe light and sound to provide safer and accurate breast cancer screening. The LOUISA-3D innovation consists of a novel optoacoustic imaging method that allows one to see under the skin through the tissues with high spatial resolution by listening to the sound of light absorbed in the body which can be used for detection and diagnostics of cancer and vascular diseases. During the phase 1 project, a go-to-market strategy and a supply chain will be established, as well as further development plan will be drafted. Within the overall innovation project Tomowave will finalize its engineering of LOUISA-3D before scaling up for clinical trials and system industrialization.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "LOUISA 3D" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email ( and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
