Abstract: Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in women today; according to the American Cancer Society, about 1.3 million women will be diagnosed with breast cancer annually worldwide and about 465,000 will die from this disease. In the western world, its incidence in females in premenopausal status results similar or superior to the incidence in females in postmenopausal status. Therefore, it is imperative to identify diagnostic tools able to detect breast cancer in young women from the very early stages. This paper presents an IT application developed to support Medical Doctors in diagnosing and reporting with an innovative non-radiating, non-invasive optically-based breast cancer detection system, suitable for scanning of young women. This system - ComfortScan - relies on a methodology – DOBI, Dynamic Optical Breast Imaging - based upon the use of a red monochromatic light beam and able to identify neoangiogenetic areas related to the onset of cancer. The application – X-Report Breast – interprets the images captured by ComfortScan and provides automatic reporting and diagnosis. X-Report Breast proves to be highly valuable in supporting the early diagnosis of breast cancers with ComfortScan, increasing the survival probability and diminishing the invasive surgical impacts.
