T-Ray Science, Inc. Profiled On CTV News


October 1, 2010 at 12:38 am

Vancouver, Canada: T-Ray Science, Inc. (TSX-V: THZ) (the “Company” or “T-Ray”) announces the technology behind the skin cancer detector  the Company is in the process of commercializing was recently profiled by Dr. Rhonda Low of CTV News.

This device will greatly aid doctors in assessing skin lesions, providing more thorough care for their patients, and reducing mistakes due to human error.  The tool can elevate the diagnostic capability of a primary care physician, thereby reducing patient wait times and helping to automate the process of the diagnosis of skin cancer.  The technology is vitally important because while there fewer than 650 dermatologists in Canada, 1 in 7 (or approximately 5 million) Canadians will get skin cancer at some point during their lives.

Patients who are diagnosed with skin cancer in the early stage have a survival rate of 99% as opposed to only 15% if diagnosed at a late stage, and the treatment of advanced lesions is 2200% more expensive  than that of early stage lesions. 

T-Ray’s revolutionary device will increase the standard of care for patients and decrease healthcare costs by enabling early diagnosis.  In addition to reducing wait times, the device will also assist doctors in determining the most dangerous lesions requiring biopsy, eliminating the unnecessary biopsies of innocent lesions.

Featured in the CTV News segment are Dr. Harvey Lui, the Head of the Department of Dermatology at UBC; and Dr. Haishan Zeng, a senior scientist with the BC Cancer Agency and Associate Professor of Dermatology and Skin Sciences at UBC.  Both doctors, along with Dr. David McLean, Professor of Medicine, Department of Dermatology at UBC and former President of the Canadian Association of Dermatologists, are inventors of the technology used in T-Ray’s skin cancer detector, and continue to be involved in building the prototype devices for clinical trials and obtaining approvals for the manufacturing and marketing of the device.
