- EPAM's C-True Mirror smart device reduces the postponement of breast checks by integrating regular screenings into people's day-to-day lives—detecting early symptoms of breast cancer and providing precautionary exercises and motivation to see a doctor. The device captures images of a person with an Ultra HD infrared camera, measures spot temperature, and analyzes structured light using LiDAR for volume and shape recognition—powered with custom computer vision and machine learning algorithms that is trained on millions of registered breast cancer cases.
