TEL AVIV (JTA) — To save women in Kenya from cervical cancer, all you need is an iPhone.
That’s the goal of MobileOCT, a year-old Israeli start-up developing a smartphone-mounted camera that can take a detailed image of the cervix. An accompanying app will read the image, analyze it and determine whether a tumor is present.
“We’re banking on the fact that every person we give a cellphone to knows how to take a picture on the cellphone,” said Ariel Beery, MobileOCT’s co-founder and CEO. “You can supply affordable diagnosis without access to doctors.”
