Precision care includes the need to have a complete vision about breast care, that’s why GE HealthCare’s presence at ECR 2024 will be enhanced by the launch of a unique women’s health mobile screening solution that enables the access to care and early breast cancer detection to all women regardless of their location. “Breast cancer continues to be the most prevalent cancer among women globally, representing 25% of all female cancers1. As we are committed to providing innovative solutions in the fight against breast cancer, this unit will showcase GE HealthCare’s latest advancements in breast care e.g. Mammography, AI-enabled solutions, Ultrasound, Automated Breast Ultrasound (ABUS). The women’s health mobile screening solution, through an immersive experience, presents an excellent opportunity for attendees to witness firsthand the technological strides in the field of breast cancer,” said Elie Chaillot.
