Dual-Mode Microwave System to Enhance Early Detection of Cancer

Description

This item was taken from the IEEE Periodical ' Dual-Mode Microwave System to Enhance Early Detection of Cancer ' A dual-mode microwave system has been developed that will permit early detection of cancer. The system combines the use of the passive microwave radiometer [1]-[3] with an active transmitter. The active transmitter will provide localized heating to enhance early detection by taking advantage of the differential heating (i.e., tumor temperature with respect to surrounding tissue) associated with thermal characteristics of tumors.
