10#10- Aceso

What is it that Africa does not offer? Here are 10 groundbreaking African inventions in technology that will simply blow your mind.

South African Kit Vaughan invented the  Aceso machine. The Aceso machine is the first imaging system designed to do a digital mammography and ultrasound at the same time. The mammographic and ultrasound technologies allow the Aceso machine to detect cancerous cells as soon as they develop even in women whose breasts tissues are very dense.

Very soon, women in South Africa and the rest of the world will have a very cost effective and efficient method of detecting breast cancer. Patented and ISO-certified in 2012, 120 women have helped to prove that this machine is indeed effective in detecting breast cancer.
