ABSTRACT Active research is invested in early diagnosis of malignant cells in order to allow scope for effective treatment. The electrical impedance measurements and the modeling techniques used to perform the calculation for dielectric permittivity, conductivity and relaxation frequency aids in the differentiation of malignant and healthy cells. The literature showed a general trend in data with malignant cells having higher electrical conductivity and lower dielectric permittivity than its… Expand
Biopsy Needle System With a Steerable Concentric Tube and Online Monitoring of Electrical Resistivity and Insertion Forces
The proposed biopsy needle system can be integrated into an autonomous robotic biopsy system and guarantees that the biopsy spoon is at the desired position inside the tumor during an operation. Expand


Dielectric spectroscopy as a viable biosensing tool for cell and tissue characterization and analysis.
This review covers the different methods of interpreting dielectric spectra and progress made in applications of impedance spectroscopy for cell observations, which include observing cell differentiation, mitosis and the cell cycle and cytotoxicity/cell death. Expand
Electrical properties of breast cancer cells from impedance measurement of cell suspensions
Impedance spectroscopy of biological cells has been used to monitor cell status, e.g. cell proliferation, viability, etc. It is also a fundamental method for the study of the electrical properties ofExpand
Electrical Characterization of Normal and Cancer Cells
The characterize and discriminate between normal and cancer cells from three different tissue types, liver, lung, and breast, using capacitance–voltage-based extracted set of parameters shows that the cancer cells of different cell origin possess their own signature electrical parameters. Expand
Quantification of the Heterogeneity in Breast Cancer Cell Lines Using Whole-Cell Impedance Spectroscopy
The findings suggest that microelectrical impedance spectroscopy might find application as a method for quantifying progression of cancer cells without the need for tagging or modifying the sampled cells. Expand

Intracellular concentration of sodium and other elements as related to mitogenesis and oncogenesis in vivo.
The data support the contentions that high intracellular sodium and chlorine concentrations are associated with mitogenesis and that even higher sodium and chlorine concentrations areassociated with oncogenesis. Expand
Dielectric properties of breast carcinoma and the surrounding tissues
The results seem to indicate that RF impedance imaging can potentially be used as a diagnostic modality for the detection of human breast carcinoma by suggesting structural and cellular inhomogeneities of the tumor tissue. Expand
Membrane potential and cancer progression
A broad understanding of the Vm as a bioelectrical signal in cancer cells is provided by examining several key types of ion channels that contribute to its regulation by examining the mechanisms by which Vm regulates cancer cell proliferation, migration, and differentiation. Expand
