Book Description

This ebook An Introduction to Microwave Imaging for Breast Cancer Detection (PDF) collates past and current research on one of the most promising emerging modalities for breast cancer detection. Medical students will discover how; as a standalone technology or in conjunction with another modality; microwave imaging has the potential to provide safe; reliable; and comfortable breast exams at low very cost. Current breast imaging modalities include X-ray; Ultrasound; Magnetic Resonance Imaging; and Positron Emission Tomography. Each of these methods suffers from limitations; including poor sensitivity or specificity; high cost; patient discomfort; and exposure to potentially harmful ionizing radiation. Microwave breast imaging is based on a contrast in the dielectric properties of breast tissue that exists at microwave frequencies.

The book begins by considering the anatomy and dielectric properties of the breast; contrasting historical and recent studies. Next; radar-based breast imaging algorithms are discussed; encompassing both early-stage artifact removal and data-independent and adaptive beamforming algorithms. In a similar fashion; microwave tomographic reconstruction algorithms are reviewed in the following chapter; introducing the reader to both the fundamental and more advanced algorithms. Apart from imaging; the book also reviews research efforts in extracting clinically useful information from the Radar Target Signature of breast tumors; which is used to classify tumors as either benign or malignant. Finally; the book concludes by describing the current state of the art in terms of prototype microwave breast imaging systems; with a particular emphasis on those which have progressed to the clinical evaluation stage.

This work is motivated by the fact that breast cancer is one of the leading causes of death amongst women in the United States and Europe and the second most common cancer in the world today. Such an important area of research will appeal to many scholars and practitioners.
