“DSP and Ultra Wide Band Radar for Early Breast Cancer Detection”

Ultra Wide Band (UWB) radar, combined with DSP-based beam-forming and image processing, has been proposed as an alternative imaging modality to X-ray mammography for the early detection of breast cancer. Its attractions include low power operation, the use of non-ionising radiation, and the potential for good tumour localisation. This talk will cover the issues associated with the use of UWB for this application, will discuss current research and potential performance, and will highlight current challenges and future work.
