Illustration of how to use the optical device. In a darkened room, switch Breast-i on and place it underneath the breast. Adjust light intensity as required and view each breast looking out for any spots or shadows. Sometimes it is necessary to place the Breast-i on top of the breast and view underneath the breast directly or use a mirror. Light is scattered through the breast tissues giving it a uniform pink or red colour with blood vessels seen as dark lines.
