Breast cancer detection using ultra-wideband technology

The project employs ultra-wideband (UWB) technology to construct an image of the breast in order to detect tumors. A mathematical model of the breast under UWB signal is built using human body properties and RF signals in the GHz range. The model is used to simulate the penetration and reflection of the UWB signals. From the wave analysis, 3-D image of the breast is to be constructed. Data are to be collected from the patients. The data are processed, analyzed, and images will be displayed. From the image, tumors will be identified. The system is used as a screening tool for breast cancer.
