Cancer is the second most common cause of death in the US, accounting for nearly 1 in every 4 deaths in the country. With rates of the disease rising as people live longer lives, innovations are urgently required to make the diagnosis and treatment of the disease more effective. That’s where Israel comes in.
In our latest broadcast for TLV1 ISRAEL21c reporter Viva Sarah Press talks to the people behind some of the most exciting new developments taking place in the field.
Press is joined in the studio by Galit Yahalom of EventusDx, developer of the world’s first blood test for breast cancer; Lynn Golumbic of InSightec, maker of a noninvasive ultrasound technology that is revolutionizing tumor removal; and Boaz Arnon of Real Imaging, inventor of a radiation-free, contact-free alternative to mammography.
