We had developed an imaging system to detect early breast cancer. In that system, we separated the transmission antenna and the receiving antenna to decrease the rigorous requests for antenna design. And it works well. In this paper, we attempt to ...

  • Confocal microwave imaging for breast tumor detection: comparison of immersion liquids

    Microwave imaging for breast cancer has been proposed as an alternative or complementary breast imaging technique. The physical basis for tumor detection with microwave imaging is the contrast in dielectric properties of normal and malignant breast tissue. One approach to active microwave imaging of the breast is confocal microwave imaging (CMI). CMI locates tumors using energy reflected from the breast after illumination by an ultra-wideband signal. In one configuration for CMI, a woman lies on her stomach with the breast naturally extending through a hole in the examination table. The illuminating antenna is positioned at a distance from the skin, and physically scanned to a number of locations. Both the antenna and breast are immersed in a low loss liquid for better matching. Previously, our investigations focussed on detection and localization of tumors in a 2D cross section of a simple breast model. We now present 3D localization of tumors achieved with 2 different immersions liquids, one similar to breast tissue and the other similar to skin. For both systems, a 6 mm diameter tumor is reliably detected and localized in 3D. The results do not indicate a clear advantage to selecting either liquid.

  • Contrast-enhanced color flow images for cancer diagnosis using neovascularity as an indicator

    Noninvasive contrast-enhanced color flow images (CFI) may be used to increase the accuracy of breast tumor diagnoses, using tumor neovascularity as an indicator. For neovascular quantification, color pixel densities (CPD) were calculated in CFI images taken pre- and postinjection of contrast agent in 17 patients with breast tumors. CPD values were used in regression analysis with microvessel density (MVID) and microvessel area (MVA) of the corresponding histopathological slides. The highest correlation was found for the microvessels 30-39 microns in diameter. While significant correlations existed between post-contrast CFI values and MVA (p < 0.05) and MVD (p < 0.005), no correlation existed with pre-contrast. In conclusion, by quantifying neovascularity, a marker of angiogenesis within breast masses, contrast- enhanced ultrasound maybe used as an adjunct tool in tumor diagnosis.

  • FDTD modeling of a coherent-addition antenna array for early-stage detection of breast cancer

    A novel pulsed microwave confocal system for the detection of breast cancer has been proposed by Hagness, Taflove and Bridges (see Proc. of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology, Society Conference, p.2506-8, Chicago, IL, 1997). An elliptical reflector focuses a microwave signal at a potential tumor site and efficiently collects the backscattered energy by refocusing it at the point of origin of the illumination. This technology is based upon two fundamental dielectric properties of breast tissues at microwave frequencies: (1) the large contrast in /spl epsiv//sub r/ and /spl sigma/ between malignant and normal tissues, which causes tumors to have significantly greater microwave scattering cross sections than normal tissues of comparable geometry; and (2) the low attenuation in normal breast tissue (less than 4 dB/cm up to 10 GHz), which permits constructive addition of wideband backscattered returns using confocal-imaging techniques. We replace the fixed- focus elliptical reflector reported by Hagness et al. with a variable-focus antenna array and extend the range of breast tissue structures modeled to include small tumors obscured by veins and mammary glands and ducts.

  • Two-dimensional FDTD analysis of a pulsed microwave confocal system for breast cancer detection: fixed-focus and antenna-array sensors

    A novel focused active microwave system is investigated for detecting tumors in the breast. In contrast to X-ray and ultrasound modalities, the method reviewed here exploits the breast-tissue physical properties unique to the microwave spectrum, namely, the translucent nature of normal breast tissues and the high dielectric contrast between malignant tumors and surrounding lesion-free normal breast tissues. The system uses a pulsed confocal technique and time-gating to enhance the detection of tumors while suppressing the effects of tissue heterogeneity and absorption. Using published data for the dielectric properties of normal breast tissues and malignant tumors, the authors have conducted a two-dimensional (2-D) finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) computational electromagnetics analysis of the system. The FDTD simulations showed that tumors as small as 2 mm in diameter could be robustly detected in the presence of the background clutter generated by the heterogeneity of the surrounding normal tissue. Lateral spatial resolution of the tumor location was found to be about 0.5 cm.

  • Radar-based microwave imaging for breast cancer detection: tumor sensing with cross-polarized reflections

    Microwave imaging for breast cancer detection is based on the difference in electrical properties of normal, fatty breast tissues and tumors. Tumors may be detected by observing variations in microwave signals transmitted through or reflected from the breast. Radar-based breast imaging methods use the reflected signals from the breast to form images, and generally this involves co-polarized reflections. Observation of the cross-polarized reflection was proposed in S.C. Hagness et al. (IEEE Transac. Ant. Propag., pp. 783-791, 1999), and it was shown that the cross-polarized response did not contain reflections from planar interfaces such as the chest wall. In this paper, we further explore the application of cross-polarization to tumor detection. A broadband antenna capable of detecting cross-polarized reflections is simulated, constructed, and measured. The feasibility of tumor detection with cross-polarized reflections is examined through simulations and experimentally.

  • Broadband cross-polarized bowtie antenna for breast cancer detection

    Currently, various approaches to microwave breast cancer detection are being investigated by several research groups. Microwave approaches are expected to provide complementary information to that obtained with mammography, the gold standard method for breast imaging. Microwave images are related to the electrical properties of tissues, and there is some evidence to suggest that a contrast exists between normal healthy breast tissues and malignant tumors. In this paper, we investigate the frequency responses of tumors in a simple breast model using computer simulations over the frequency range of 2 to 4.25 GHz. Also, the influence of a variety of parameters (e.g. tumor shape, size, location and depth) on the frequency response is examined.
