Portable Microwave Systems for Imaging and Monitoring of the Human Body (2012–2014)

The aim of this project is the design and development of portable microwave apparatus to investigate the viability of microwave techniques to image and monitor the human brain and lungs. It will employ array antennas integrated with compact microwave transceivers and rapid data acquisition tools to obtain microwave images of the brain and lungs in a timely and comfortable manner. Because of non-ionizing radiation and low operation cost it can be frequently applied to diagnose and monitor brain and lungs abnormalities such as stroke and pulmonary edema. It can be of significant importance in situations where access to traditional diagnostic tools such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or computerized active tomography (CAT) is unavailable.
