Paper Abstract

Microwave-induced thermoacoustic imaging (TAI) has attracted considerable interest as a promising imaging modality. Previous studies show that TAI has great potential for use in breast tumor detection with high contrast and high spatial resolution, nevertheless it requires high energy density and possesses small field of view (FOV). In this paper, a ultrashort microwave pulse (USMP) TAI system was employed for quality imaging with much less energy density required , and simultaneously, large enough FOV was obtained to cover the whole breast. The experimental results clearly demonstrate that the new USMP TAI system can be used for three-dimensional (3-D) localization of deep breast tumors with low microwave radiation dose over the whole breast.
