An anatomically accurate dielectric profile of the porcine kidney
(IOP Publishing, 2018-02-07)
Microwave ablation is a promising treatment for kidney cancer. Accurate knowledge of the dielectric properties of biological tissues is vital for quantifying the safety, reliability and accuracy of ablation, among other ...
Symmetry difference electrical impedance tomography - a novel modality for anomaly detection
(IOP Publishing, 2018-03-13)
Objective: The theoretical basis, experimental implementation, and proof of concept of a novel electrical impedance tomography (EIT) imaging technique, called symmetry difference EIT, is described. This technique is ...
The potential of time-multiplexed steering in phased array microwave hyperthermia for head and neck cancer treatment
(IOP Publishing, 2018-06-04)
Clinical studies have shown that hyperthermia sensitizes tumor cells for conventional therapies. During phased-array microwave hyperthermia, an array of antennas is used to focus the electromagnetic waves at the target ...
Microwave breast imaging: experimental tumour phantoms for the evaluation of new breast cancer diagnosis systems
(IOP Publishing, 2018-01-29)
In this paper, a new set of tumour phantoms for the experimental evaluation of Microwave Breast Imaging (MBI) as a method to diagnose breast cancer is presented. The phantoms were based on previously developed numerical ...
