Breast monitoring via time-domain microwave radar: early clinical trial study

Annu Int Conf IEEE Eng Med Biol Soc. 2014;2014:6601-4. doi: 10.1109/EMBC.2014.6945141.


This work describes early results from our firststage clinical trial involving the monitoring of healthy volunteers with our time-domain microwave breast screening system. The system is composed of a 16-sensor multistatic array that records the electromagnetic energy scattered off of the breast tissue. All measurements are performed in the timedomain. We present here the system setup, patient-interface considerations, volunteer criteria and initial results from breast monitoring.
