A new non invasive technique to pick up breast  cancer has been unveiled by UK scientists. Breast cancer is the most diagnosed form cancer in the UK.  Current statistics show, that there are around 11 500 breast cancer deaths every year…. and that’s 32 cases every day. Dense breast tissue, particularly common in young women, is difficult to image using existing techniques.
