I like the technology that they have regarding mamography. The fact that it can be used in conjunction with x-ray and ultrasound to assist in differentiating malignant from benign lesions is great. This will reduce the great number of invasive biopsies performed which later prove to be negative. However the technology is in the process of being approved by the FDA and if it does pass FDA approval I can see the pps skyrocketing.
Does anybody know if you can find out the probability of a product being approved by the FDA? How long do these tests take? and how much can they affect the pps?
I also cannot read charts if someone wants to take a look at this one and let me know what you think.....
