According to the story, "the training system addresses a critical need for physicians to develop the technique and skill necessary to consistently detect the presence of breast lesions during a clinical breast exam (CBE)."

 

Pugh, the clinical director of the UW Health Clinical Simulation Program, is an advocate for haptics (the science of touch) and the use of tactile feedback in training.
