“Sensor Technology Helps Clinicians Improve Breast Exam Skills”

NIBIB-funded researchers have developed a highly effective sensor system to improve the quality of clinical breast examinations by physicians. The training system addresses a critical need for physicians to develop the technique and skill necessary to consistently detect the presence of breast lesions during a clinical breast exam (CBE). To improve training, the device incorporates a sensor that indicates when a physician is palpating (pressing) with adequate force necessary to detect a lump in the breast.
