This project aims for the early-stage Breast-cancer detection. The nano-metamaterials can support compact and high resolution imaging microscopy to resolve and detect tumors at an early stage. Such product will be useful for early breast tumor detections for population at risk. It should be noted that in Pakistan each year 70,000 new cases are diagnosed and 40,000 lives are lost per annum. The key to improve patient prognosis is timely detection of breast tumors, which is not possible using conventional mammograms due to their ionizing, unsafe nature. This lab has close collaboration with medical professionals in Lahore and also with the only breast-cancer NGO (Pink Ribbon) in Pakistan.
