Is it reliable?

On our minds is the iTBra, a bra that can be used as an early detector of breast cancer. Developed by scientists in Colombia, the invention works to monitor the wearer in-between doctor’s check-ups through measuring differences in body-heat (which may suggest the presence of cancerous cells) with infrared lights. Currently at trial stage, the inventors are looking to release the bra in Asia, Europe and the US at a price around $99 for a consumer version. Critics fear that this accessibly priced and convenient product might prevent women from going through mammography and other proven methods, doubting the (sparely tested) bra and the reliability of its ‘test’ results.
