Open-ended coaxial probe technique for dielectric measurement of biological tissues: challenges and common practices
(MDPI AG, 2018-06-05)
Electromagnetic (EM) medical technologies are rapidly expanding worldwide for both diagnostics and therapeutics. As these technologies are low-cost and minimally invasive, they have been the focus of significant research ...
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 ...
Brain haemorrhage detection using a svm classifier with electrical impedance tomography measurement frames
(Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2018-07-12)
Brain haemorrhages often require urgent treatment with a consequent need for quick and accurate diagnosis. Therefore, in this study, we investigate Support Vector Machine (SVM) classifiers for detecting brain haemorrhages ...
Supervised learning classifiers for electrical impedance-based bladder state detection
(Springer Nature, 2018-03-29)
Urinary Incontinence affects over 200 million people worldwide, severely impacting the quality of life of individuals. Bladder state detection technology has the potential to improve the lives of people with urinary ...
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 ...
