Qualitative methods include blood vessel display inside and outside of pathological changes part of breast, display of equivalent pixel curves at the part of pathological changes and display of breast tumor image edge. Accordingly, three feature extraction operators are proposed, i.e. the combination operators of anisotropic gradient and smoothing operator, an improved Sobel operator and an edge sharpening operator. Furthermore, quantitative diagnostic approaches are discussed based on blood and oxygen contents according to abundant clinical data and pathological mechanism of breast tumors. The results of clinic show that the methods of combining qualitative and quantitative diagnose are effective for breast tumor images, especially for early and potential breast cancer

  • Not your mother's mammography [breast cancer detection]

    Breast cancer accounts for nearly one of every three cancers diagnosed in US women. While great strides have been made in early detection, the conventional method of mammography is not failproof it has trouble imaging dense tissue, it may show suspicious areas where no malignancy exists, and radiologists interpreting the images can miss up to 15 percent of cancers. It's also uncomfortable, requiring each breast to be compressed between plastic plates, which can lead to bruising. Susan Hagness wants to change all that. An assistant professor of electrical engineering at the University of Wisconsin- Madison, she is pioneering a novel detection technique that uses ultrawideband microwaves to image even the tiniest malignant tumors in the breast. Breast tumors and normal tissue show much more contrast at microwave frequencies than at the X-ray frequencies used for mammograms. Microwaves are also nonionizing, and the technique requires no breast compression. In Susan Hagness' search for a better way to detect breast cancer, she gets her students involved, too. Such efforts have paid off: her courses consistently receive high marks on student evaluations.

  • Human Breast Tumor Characterization on Post-Surgical Mastectomy Specimens Using Harmonic Motion Imaging (HMI)

    Recently, we have shown that Harmonic Motion Imaging (HMI) can be used to differentiate relative stiffness and monitor HIFU ablations in small lumpectomy human breast specimens. The objective of this study is to apply HMI on post-surgical mastectomy breast specimen to mimic the in vivo environment and characterize tumor at different depth for better tumor localization and identification before and after HIFU treatment. 2D HMI displacement maps could be generated to map the induced peak-to-peak displacement covering the entire target area within two minutes indicating lower displacement in the tumor region and higher displacement in the peripheral tissue. A Student's paired t-test across all specimens showed a significant difference in the HMI displacement (P <; 0.0001) between the tumor and the perilesional tissue. HMI was shown to successfully map the relative stiffness at variable depths in post-surgical human breast mastectomy specimens. This study therefore lays the foundation for upcoming clinical application of HMI on the breast for tumor detection and subsequent thermal ablative treatment.

  • Breast tumor imaging using NIR LED based handheld continuous-wave imager

    Near-infrared (NIR) optical spectroscopy has shown promising diagnostic capability for early detection of breast cancer. Our aim is to miniaturize existing technology and develop a suitable device for bedside monitoring. A NIR based handheld imager is a compact and can be a cost effective complimentary solution to the existing technologies like X-ray mammography and ultrasound. The device is a continuous-wave imager with SNR of 46 dB that monitors the changes in blood volume and oxygenation. Data are displayed on the handheld device using a dynamic color-coding scheme, which enhances the contrast in images. Preliminary analyses have been done using breast phantom and cuff ischemia experiment. Further experiments on a breast model with tumor will be performed. Then, preliminary clinical results will be presented.

  • An ANN approach for false alarm detection in microwave breast cancer detection

    This paper presents the feed-forward back-propagation technique of artificial neural networks to validate the false alarm detection in breast cancer. A simple model of the human breast with a tumor of size 5 mm has been used to record the data of electromagnetic wave scattering in the microwave band in range 1-10 GHz. The recorded data with and without added synthetic noise is used to train, validate and test the networks. The synthetic noise is added to the data to validate the ruggedness of the ANN model. The increase of noise in recorded signal with deterioration of the signal to noise ratio from 40 dB to 1 dB in signal results the increase in false alarm detection from 2% to 22%, which can become the cause of the false report generation of the breast cancer detection.

  • Source location and dose verification for X-ray intra-operative radiotherapy (IORT)

    A recent development in radiotherapy has been the introduction of the PRS Intrabeam system (Karl Zeiss LtD) for the treatment of both brain and breast tumours. This is essentially a miniaturized, electron-driven photon generator that allows high intensity, soft-energy x-rays to be delivered directly to the tumour site in a single fraction. The isotropical distribution of these photons about the tip of a magnetically shielded needle can be viewed as a point source buried in the body. This work has looked into ways of localizing the source in the body in an Emission Computerized Tomography (ECT) procedure. Various detection systems have been considered as possible candidates for this work. The accuracy with which the source can be localized has been investigated. Furthermore, Monte Carlo studies have been employed in order to extract information on the dosimetric aspect of the resulting image. The final goal of this work is to formulate a direct mathematical relation (Transform Map) between the image created by the escaping photons and the dose map as predicted by the theoretical model. This could allow for a real-time monitoring system of the radiation delivery during the treatment and provide dose verification maps for patient records

  • P3C-5 Split-Focused Ultrasound for Breast Tumor Thermal Surgery with Multidirectional Heating

    This study investigated the feasibility of using split-focused ultrasound transducers with mechanical rotation to do multi-direction heating for breast tumor thermal therapy. The driving frequency, radius of curvature, and side length of the rectangle spherical transducer are 0.5 MHz, 10 cm, and 7 cm, respectively. In order to alleviate the rib heating, the transducer was tilted be 45 degree relative to the muscle/bone interface, and its focal zone was shifted with 6 mm away from the center of the planning target volume (PTV). Based on the multi-focus temporal switching technique, strategies employing single transducer and multiple transducers were both evaluated. As a single transducer was used, the transducer was rotated sequentially to achieve a uniform heating from four planned positions with 90 degree apart. While in multiple ultrasound transducers cases, an appropriate arrangement was designed to have the same configuration of acoustic beams in the single-transducer case. Computer simulations and in vitro phantom had been studied for this ultrasound heating system. The results demonstrated the capacity of this system design; it was able to effectively shorten the treatment time by generating a larger thermal lesion through multi-focus switching and sparing the cooling interval through multidirectional sonications. This study indicated that by appropriate arrangement of a single or multiple split- focused transducers with mechanical rotation, it is very promising to implement multi-direction heating for breast tumor thermal therapy.

  • Microwave inverse scattering for breast tumor detection using finite difference frequency domain modeling

    We have implemented a new algorithm for the electromagnetic inverse scattering problem in inhomogeneous media using a MATLAB-based finite difference frequency domain (FDFD) forward model. This algorithm, referred to as FDFD- based inverse method, constructs a near-linear expression for inversion from the matrix form of the forward model and uses a vector-based Born approximation without employing an a priori Green's function. This algorithm is easily implemented and is robust to the heterogeneity of the background. 2D microwave breast tumor detection is investigated using an MRI-based breast model for the purpose of checking the application in highly heterogeneous material.
