    Israeli company Deep Breeze has invented a non-invasive radiation free lung imaging system that uses Vibration Response Imaging to build up a real-time picture of the lung.

    The technology, which some are calling the biggest breakthrough since ultrasound, can be used to diagnose cancer, asthma and other pulmonary diseases. Sales will begin in the US shortly.

    No. 1 cause of cancer deaths isn't as lethal as doctors once thought...
    :confused:
    Study says many lung cancer tumors prove harmless
    9 Dec.`13 — Harmless lung cancer? A provocative study found that nearly 1 in 5 lung tumors detected on CT scans are probably so slow-growing that they would never cause problems. The analysis suggests the world's No. 1 cause of cancer deaths isn't as lethal as doctors once thought.

    Weird, I've done several searches on this tech and the company who invented it, Deep Breeze, and nothing comes up.

    A little help?

    Well, I know the company exists, I was more interested in this medical breakthrough. There doesn't seem to be much info on it outside the mention in one or two israeli publications.
