Incorporating a biopsy needle as an electrode in transrectal electrical impedance imaging

Abstract

Previous studies have shown that prostate cancer may be detected by a combined transrectal ultrasound and electrical impedance tomography imaging system. However, the sensitivity of the imaging system is limited due to very little current established in the far field distant from the probe surface. Consequently, biopsy needles are introduced to the imaging… (More)
