NEWS 4 JAX (WJXT) –  (January 30, 2019)

Last year, more than half a million women were diagnosed with cervical cancer, which is the fourth-most frequent cancer in women, according to the World Health Organization.

An Israeli startup says it has new technology that could be lifesaving for women — a simple, inexpensive device called an EVA system that a doctor connects to a cellphone, allowing it to detect cervical cancer.

The device uses an algorithm to determine a patient’s risk of cancer by comparing images to a database.
