Lavi Technology
Fighting Cancer





Tel Aviv (JTA) — The
abandoned Lavi fighter
plane project is helping an
Israeli company produce a
new device for the early de-
tection of cancer.
The machine, called the
cytoscan, was developed at a
cost of $9 million by the
Tamam Precision In-
Struments company, a sub-
sidiary of Israel Aircraft In-
dustries' electronics divi-
sion.
It expects to sell about 20
worldwide in the coming
year. The device is expected
to sell for $175,000.
IAI sources said the
manufacturing principles,
employing lasers, are a
spinoff from the Levi,
Israel's second-generation
jet fighter-bomber, which
reached the prototype stage
before it was canceled in
1987 because of excessive
costs.
The cytoscan can diagnose
a cancerous growth within
60 minutes, using a blood
sample, and can also deter-
mine the kind of cancer and
its location in the body, ac-
cording to a report in
Ma'ariv.
It can detect and locate
lung, breast and skin cancer
and cancer of the large in-
testines. It cannot spot
cancers where there is no
solid tumor, such as blood
cancer.

Israeli Doctor
Invents Device







Jerusalem (JTA) — An
Iraqi-born Israeli pediatri-
cian has invented a light-
weight artificial breathing
device that some of his peers
consider revolutionary in its
ability to alleviate breathing
disabilities without inser-
ting a tube through the
trachea.
The device, unveiled at the
seventh International Ex-
hibition on Medical
Technology in Jerusalem, is
called the Hayek Oscillator,
after Dr. Zamir Hayek, who
developed it.
It can be used for the short-
term treatment of diseases
congesting the lungs, such
as pneumonia, cystic
fibrosis, asthma, pulmonary
shock, neuromuscular
disease and even to aid
drowning victims.
The armies of Israel, the
United States and Britain
have expressed interest in
purchasing a number of
units for the treatment of
victims of chemical warfare.
