Title: La Radiometria a microonde per la diagnosi del tumore al seno
Authors: Bardati, Fernando

breast cancer detection

Abstract: Interest in breast imaging with electromagnetic fields in the microwave band has been mainly motivated by certain deficiencies in current screening and diagnostic practices based on X-ray mammography. In this thesis the feasibility of microwave radiometry as a modality for early-stage breast cancer detection has been investigated based on the tumor over-temperature rationale. The goal of this work is to establish the rationale for the application of microwave radiometry for breast cancer detection and to provide the basis for setting-up measurements on patients. Basing on electrical and thermal properties of breast tissue available in the literature I developed a numerical model to predict the radiometric output when a contacting antenna is scanned on the breast surface. For this reason, a full 3D model that relates radiometric data to the temperature difference between normal and malignant breast has been developed in order to predict the radiometric visibility o...
