WHAT IF YOUR ANNUAL MAMMOGRAM COULD SAVE SOMEONE ELSE’S LIFE?
Back in 2011, during a conversation with my father who is a doctor specialising in breast imaging diagnosis, I learned that breast cancer is the form of cancer that kills the most women.
Mamotest is a movement that’s democratising breast cancer early diagnosis in order to prevent up to 51,000 deaths per year, which would also save the healthcare system in Latin America. It’s a comprehensive solution based on telemedicine, that allows us to strategically locate state of the art mammography units in healthcare centres in underserved areas.
Women visit our centres and have a mammogram done. The mammogram is then uploaded to the cloud and read by a specialist doctor, somewhere in the world, who will send a report back in less than 24 hours. We also run cancer awareness campaigns and we push for legislation so women can have one day off of work to see the gynecologist and have their mammogram done.
FUNDING WOULD ALLOW US TO…
Funding will allow us to upscale our validated business model beyond Argentina to the rest of Latin America. Our plan is to further develop our platform to capture critical metrics in real time, to automatically distribute workloads among doctors, and to support the process of interpreting images in order to make the process even more efficient. By doing this, we’ll be democratising access to breast cancer early diagnosis.
So far, we have 15 centres in the north of Argentina, reaching 60,000 women per year and saving $15 million per year in the healthcare system. Today a woman in the province of Chaco, Argentina, can have access to the same quality of breast imaging diagnosis that a woman in Europe has.
