About

Marpé Technologies is a science based company developing innovative scanners for early detection of skin cancer.
Prototype scanners are operating at the Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center and the Bnei Zion Medical Center in Haifa, both leading hospitals in Israel, indicating the superior features of Marpe’s technology.

The Need

Preventive Screening

Skin diseases

Skin diseases

  •  The 4th most common cause of non-fatal disease burden worldwide
  • The risk of developing skin diseases – particularly cancer – increases significantly with age

.

skin cancer detection

For skin cancer, early detection is vital:

  • 80% of dermatologists manually perform a full-body screening of their patients
  • 56% of melanomas detected in private clinics were found by a manual body scan initiated by the dermatologist

Malignant melanoma: the deadliest form of skin cancer

Preventive screening saves lives, and healthcare costs…

Preventive screening can increase survival rate from under 10% to over 95%

ACS: American Cancer Society

But there aren’t enough dermatologists (use case: the US) …

The ACS recommends annual skin screening for people over 40

  • The US population over 40 is 156 million
  • There is a severe shortage of dermatologists (there are only 15,000 dermatologists in the US)
  • The examination process is time consuming (takes over 30 minutes)

The result

Only

%

of US population have accessibility to preventive skin screening

The dermatology sector will evolve, it’s just a matter of time…  and technology
