Eve Wellness is First-of-its-Kind Clinic to Offer Women Access to Advanced AI-based Ultrasound Screening

SAN FRANCISCO - April 23, 2024 - PRLog -- Health care is often identified as a key area where AI will have a significant impact, which inspired Eve Wellness, the first-of-its-kind walk-in retail clinic fully dedicated to breast cancer screening. Located in San Francisco's Cow Hollow neighborhood, Eve Wellness offers advanced AI-based whole breast ultrasound screening, providing women with a fast, easy, and comfortable screening option.

AI, coupled with established radiation-free ultrasound imaging technology, provides Eve an advantage over traditional breast screening options such as mammograms for dense breast tissue.  AI, which the FDA has approved after a rigorous scientific study, gives Eve Wellness the unique benefits of using a system that uses a base of 2,000,000+ images when looking for abnormalities and able to identify up to 3,000 cancers. This exceeds the number of breast cancers a radiologist sees in his/her career.  Eve Wellness is particularly effective for women with dense breast tissue, where finding cancers is like looking for salt in snow.  Also, all results from Eve Wellness are read and reported by a breast cancer specialist physician, Dr. Ian Grady, Medical Director.

Eve Wellness partners with QView Medical, a privately held Silicon Valley pioneer who developed the first Computer-aided Design (CAD) system for the 3D Automated Breast Ultrasound Systems (ABUS).   The AI-QVCAD, launched in 2017, was developed by a group of AI experts with over 100 years of combined experience.  It is being used in 50 sites worldwide, operating as a radiologist assist in identifying cancers. Eve Wellness is its first partnership with a retail clinic.

"We all know somebody who has been affected by breast cancer", says Brendan Foley, President and Co-Founder of Eve Wellness, "We also know that early detection is critical.  Eve Wellness and its AI-based solution was launched to better support all women so that they can protect themselves from this horrible disease by providing a convenient, affordable and, most importantly, effective way to proactively monitor their breast health"

Traditionally reserved for hospitals and other medical facilities, the Eve Wellness technology provides women with access to breast screening services through its retail storefront on Union Street in San Francisco's Cow Hollow neighborhood.   Results are usually provided to our patients within 2 business days.
