Hybrid Imaging System for Breast Cancer Detection (2010–2013)

This project aims to design and develop an efficient imaging system for early breast cancer detection. The proposed system utilizes a novel hybrid approach that combines dielectric and elasticity contrast between tumours and healthy tissues to produce a detailed three dimensional image of the breast. Microwave and acoustic signals are employed to achieve that goal. This research is intended to reduce mortality rates by making medical diagnosis more readily accessible, reliable and efficient. Moreover, the fundamental studies on modelling and designing the proposed system have substantial benefits for researchers in microwave and biomedical engineering.
