The Mastascope is an ultraslim, hand held endoscope designed to enter the breast nipple via one of its milk ducts, thus permitting the physician to visualize the interior aspects of the breast. Because many cancers actually begin within an individual milk duct, these intraductal tumors are visualized easily and can be biopsied. This product has been used in leading breast centers in the United Kingdom and other countries with great success. Lifeline has obtained a CE mark for marketing and distribution in Europe.
Lifeline has developed and tested an ultraslim endoscope to directly visualize the ovarian surface in the search for cancer. This is of great advantage to physicians, because neither MRI, X-Ray nor Ultrasonography can provide accurate assessments of subtle surface changes. Initial reports of clinical usage have been encouraging.
