Title (EN) MICROWAVE NEARFIELD RADAR IMAGING (NRI) USING DIGITAL BREAST TOMOSYNTHESIS (DBT) FOR NON-INVASIVE BREAST CANCER DETECTION
(FR) IMAGERIE PAR RADAR À CHAMP PROCHE (NRI) À MICRO-ONDES UTILISANT UNE TOMOSYNTHÈSE MAMMAIRE NUMÉRIQUE (DBT) POUR UNE DÉTECTION DE CANCER DU SEIN NON-INVASIVE
Abstract:
(EN) In some aspects, the disclosure is directed methods and systems for granular imaging of a distribution of tissues. A tomographic device may acquire a first image of a distribution of tissues, the first image including a plurality of pixels. A tomographic image processor may translate at least some of the plurality of pixels of the first image into a plurality of values representative of a distribution of dielectric constants corresponding to the distribution of tissues. A nearfield radar imaging (NRI) system may generate a second image of the distribution of tissues based on the plurality of values.
(FR) Dans certains aspects, l'invention concerne des procédés et des systèmes pour l'imagerie granulaire d'une distribution de tissus. Un dispositif tomographique peut acquérir une première image d'une distribution de tissus, la première image comprenant une pluralité des pixels. Un processeur d'image tomographique peut convertir au moins une partie de la pluralité de pixels de la première image en une pluralité de valeurs représentant une distribution de constantes diélectriques correspondant à la distribution de tissus. Un système d'imagerie par radar à champ proche (NRI) peut générer une seconde image de la distribution de tissus, sur la base de la pluralité de valeurs.
