Microwave Applications In Medicine

Example: Microwave Cancer Detection


Microwave breast tumor detection

Microwave breast tumordetection

  • Microwave tomography

    – Inverse scattering, non-linear relationship between the acquired data and imagined pattern, non-unique solution.

    – Early solutions - linear approximation, more recent accurate solutions based on optimization.

  • Ultra-wideband microwave radar techniques

  • Hybrid microwave – acoustic imaging


Breast tissue electrical properties

Breast tissue electrical properties

  • Early (before 2000) published data

    – Are not all in agreement

    – Limited sample sizes and frequency ranges

    – Do not consistently distinguish between different normal tissue types


Breast tissue dielectric spectroscopy

Breast tissue Dielectric Spectroscopy

  • Comprehensive study to characterize malignant, benign, and normal breast tissues

    • U. Wisconsin-Madison (S. C. Hagness) and

    • U. Calgary, Canada (M. Okoniewski)

  • Frequencies 0.5 - 20 GHz

  • Total number of patients 93, samples 490; ages 17-65

  • Tissue composition determined by pathologists

    • Normal breasts: percentage adipose, fibrous connective, and glandular

Radar based detection historical

radar-based detection - historical

  • 1998/1999: S. C. Hagness, A. Taflove & J. Bridges (Northwestern U.): concept proposed and demonstrated with FDTD models of planar antenna array system

  • 2000: E.C. Fear & M.A. Stuchly (U. Victoria): cylindrical system, skin subtraction - FDTD

  • Today: two main groups pursue simulations & experiments

    – Susan C. Hagness, U. Wisconsin

    – Elise C. Fear, U. Calgary

    – Other groups


Radar based detection basic

Radar-based detection - basic

  • Ultra-wideband pulse: modulated Gaussian or frequency contents optimized (1 - 10 GHz)

  • Small broadband antennas

  • Signal processing

    – Calibration: removal of the antenna artifacts

    – Skin surface identification and artifact removal: reduce dominant reflection from skin - various algorithms

    – Compensation: of frequency dependent propagation effects

    – Tumor detection

    • Basic algorithm: compute time delays from antennas to focal

    • point, add together corresponding signals, scan focal point

    • through volume

    • Additional complex signal processing

MRI & Sensor-measured temperature


Utrecht hyperthermia system

Utrecht Hyperthermia System

  • 3 T MRI system, RF = 128 MHz

  • Radio frequency within the range optimal for regional hyperthermia of abdomen

  • Efficient 3T MRI requires tuned antenna array instead of traditional coils

  • The same antenna array for hyperthermia and MRI monitoring

  • Water (de-ionized) bolus

    – Optimal power coupling & surface cooling of the patient

    – Shorter antennas (more elements): better control of focus and uniformity of B field in imaging

    – No significant effect on S/N in imaging


Interdisciplinary research involving

Cancer Detection Research At BAMU using TDR


Principle of tdr

Principle of TDR

A fast rising (20 ps) pulse is transmitted in the sample of interest.

The sample is placed in transmission line

The reflected pulse is recorded

Fourier Transform is used to extract the information.

Experiments have been perfoemed in vitro as well as in vivo


Interdisciplinary research involving

Values of permittivity, conductivity & relaxation time for the control and oral squamous cell carcinoma groups

Values of permittivity, conductivity & relaxation time for the control and oral squamous cell carcinoma groups


Statistical analysis

Statistical Analysis


Interdisciplinary research involving

The mean permittivity and conductivity values were higher in the OSCC group as compared to the control group. The mean relaxation time value was higher in the control group as compared to the OSCC group.

Statistically significant correlation was not observed between values of dielectric parameters and the different clinical stages of OSCC.

The mean values of permittivity and conductivity were higher in histopathological grade II as compared to grade I. Grade I had a higher relaxation time compared to grade II.

Thus, the values of dielectric parameters correlated well with the histopathological grades of OSCC and the difference was found to be extremely statistically significant (p<0.0001)

Interdisciplinary research involving

The feature vectors p are extracted for each set of measurements. These feature vectors are used as inputs to Linear Discriminate Analysis (LDA).

The measurements have been classified in three categories as follows:

Category 1. Subjects with no tobacco eating habits

Category 2: Subjects with tobacco eating habits

Category 3: Subjects with known cases of cancer (grade -1)

Category 4: Subjects with known cases of cancer (grade -2)

Category 5: Subjects with known cases of cancer (grade -3)
