How Much an Abortion Costs Dr. Lisa Masterson: A new device that’s out and it's called Sure-Tech and basically, it's another screening device tool, and what it does is, is a better way for the clinician or the doctor to do a clinical breast exam and it assist the doctor with doing that by having a 192 sensors in this probe and what the doctor does is they’ll do a breast exam using this, just like they would the regular exam but it records it. And so it's reproducible at last, so that other people can compare it. So what you see on the left hand side faintly is a normal breast, you don’t see any masses or any lumps. And then, this is an abnormal breast, this is a breast with cancer. And you'll see which shows as not only the size and the shape of an abnormality, so this is a cancerous breast. It's a great adjunct to the clinical breast exam, so it's another tool that’s out there to think about using in the battle against breast cancer.
