Lowering Barriers to Early Cancer Screening

Get Started



What We Do

We are developing a low-cost, non-invasive solution for early detection and preliminary diagnosis of Breast Cancer. Our mission is to provide accessible Cancer Imaging Technology to all; we are particulary interested in delivering products to low- and middle-income nations.

Accurate

Our goal is to deliver cutting-edge medical imaging technology to undercut the healthcare costs that are currently hindering early diagnosis and care for cancer patients.

Reliable

We believe that our solutions will soon become one of the biggest segments in the industry. Stay tuned to learn all there is to know about the smart tech behind our medical imaging devices.

New

We are working on revolutionizing the current state of the art so that patients, regardless of their socioeconimic background, can receive their diagnosis in a way that has never been done before!



About Us

The creators of EarlyByrd are a group of graduate students studying Mathematics and Engineering at Florida Institute of Technology. Their diverse team from different nations was able to identify a a common prolem - severe shortage of medical imaging systems in their home countries. They took on the challenge in order to lower the barriers to early cancer detection in developing countries. MRI and CT scans are extremely expensive and most citizens in developing nations simply cannot afford the costs. In many situations, cancer patients find out about their ailments when it's too late. Early diagnosis through their creation can add at least 5 years to a patient’s life.

In order to provide excellent solutions, we dedicate time and resources to research the market needs and our users’ habits and motives. We have, and will continue to work tirelessly to become the technological standard, providing big picture insights which industry leaders not only approve of, but also depend on.
