Microwave System for Early Breast Cancer Detection Employing Ultra Wideband Conformal Array Antenna (2010–2012)

This research proposal aims at the development of an ultra wideband microwave system for breast cancer detection, which will meet the standard of a pre-clinical prototype. The system will employ a conformal array antenna and a rapid data acquisition equipment to obtain a breast screening in a timely and comfortable manner. Enhanced quality breast images will be achieved using new pre- and post-processing algorithms to the measured data. Because of its low cost, high resolution and safe operation, the system will complement X-ray mammography, magnetic resonance and ultra sound imaging to obtain early detection and timely medical treatment of breast-cancer patients.
