RENO, Nevada -- While mammography is still considered the gold standard for detecting breast cancer, a Reno, Nevada company is developing a new screening tool that's non invasive, non compression, and extremely accurate.

Matthew Benardis' company, First Warning Systems, has developed a bra that can detect temperature changes in a woman's breasts, which could signal breast cancer, with the help of 16 sensors, eight on each breast.

Women would wear the bras for 12 hours, starting at 18 years old, as part of their annual health screening to gather the data for doctors.

First Warning Systems hopes to have the bra available for public use in the middle of next year.
