System created by company at Skolkovo Foundation reduces period of cancer detection by three times
«We have problems with oncological diseases, primarily because of the complexity of the morphological verification of cancer, as well as making a diagnosis, that takes from 14 to 30−35 days, during which time the cancer could progress from the first stage to the third. Such long terms are due to the fact that, for example, a patient who has been admitted to a district hospital, has to receive a referral to the regional cancer detection centre to have biopsy performed, where he would have to wait for some time to be tested. We offer a possibility to cut this chain short by transferring online the data to a morphologist. This way the patient would have a ready diagnosis in just three days,» Zinoviev said.
