The efficacy of emerging microwave breast cancer detection and treatment techniques will depend, in part, on the dielectric properties of normal breast tissue. However, knowledge of these properties at microwave frequencies has been limited due to gaps and discrepancies in previously reported small-scale studies. To address these issues, we experimentally(More)
The development of microwave breast cancer detection and treatment techniques has been driven by reports of substantial contrast in the dielectric properties of malignant and normal breast tissues. However, definitive knowledge of the dielectric properties of normal and diseased breast tissues at microwave frequencies has been limited by gaps and(More)
Hermetic stainless-steel open-ended coaxial probes have been designed for precision dielectric spectroscopy of biological tissue, such as breast tissue, over the 0.5-20-GHz frequency range. Robust data-processing techniques have also been developed for extracting the unknown permittivity of the tissue under test from the reflection coefficient measured with(More)
The continuing advances in the field of electrical engineering, in areas like cellular communications, fiber optics, mobile and multi-gigahertz electronics have necessitated a computer-assisted design approach to the complex electromagnetic interactions and problems that arise. Finite-Difference Time-Domain (FDTD) Analysis is a very powerful tool for the(More)
In this paper, a feasibility study of the application of the tissue sensing adaptive radar technique for imaging of the knee is presented. Selected tissues of the knee joints were characterized, from the dielectric properties point of view, through measurements on bovine tissue samples using a high precision dielectric probe. Based on the acquired data,(More)
This paper focuses on improving the fingerprinting techniques required for an indoor, range-free, Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) localization system. An important application of such a system is for the accurate localization of equipment and persons within a dense hospital environment. Due to the time consuming nature of fingerprinting, which is also(More)
