The measurement of electrical impedance of skin using surface electrodes permits the assessment of changes in local properties of the skin and can be used in the detection of tumors. The sensitivity of this technique depends mainly on the geometry of the probe and the size of the tumor. In this article, the impedance method was used to estimate the sensitivity of a tetrapolar probe in detecting small regions of increased conductivity in a stratified model of human skin. The impedance method was… CONTINUE READING
