Microwave Head Monitor Using Compressed Sensing and Differential Techniques (2015–2017)

The aim of this project is the design and development of a low-cost, non-ionizing, and non-invasive microwave technology that can be used to diagnose and localize early brain injuries of premature newborn babies. It will include a switched antenna array and wide-band microwave transceiver. The system will use a combination of compressed sensing and differential imaging techniques to produce, within a few seconds, microwave images of the brain making it a real-time monitoring tool. By providing vital information about the brain at the incubator side, the proposed compact technology avoids the risky move of critically ill babies to the expensive and bulky conventional scanners which, furthermore, cannot operate as frequent monitoring tools.
