Final Report - MUST (Multidimensional Ultrasonic Scanning Technology to reduce cancer death rate through fast and accurate diagnosis particularly of breast cancer)

Project ID: 508252
Funded under: FP6-SME

Abstract

This is the final report for the MUST project whose purpose was to create a three-dimensional (3D) scanning system which:
- is a patient friendly scanning system available at the point of care;
- does not require a significant fixed installation;
- that is fully affordable by the most modest of facilities with a target price of EUR 10 000;
- is highly portable;
- has great ease of use;
- gives immediate results for further decision making.

The report covers the progress made towards achieving this goal and their major achievements. It notes that the MUST three dimensional ultrasound scanning solution will not replace the CAT and MRI scanners, but it will replace some of their uses in surface or near surface tumour recognition, thereby greatly reducing the time to diagnosis and the cost of diagnosis and increasing the availability of high quality scanning.
