Harmonic Motion Microwave Doppler Imaging method, which was proposed as an alternative method for breast tumor detection, is a combination of microwave radar and focused ultrasound techniques yielding data depending on electrical and mechanical properties of the tissue. In this study, Harmonic Motion Microwave Doppler Imaging data from a small tumor inside homogeneous fat is analyzed as a function of tumor location on three orthogonal planes using Finite Difference Time Domain simulations. The results show that the resolution on the order of millimeters is achievable with this method.

Sensing acoustically induced local harmonic motion using a microwave transceiver system may provide useful information for detecting nonpalpable tumors in dense breast tissue. For this purpose, we propose the harmonic motion microwave Doppler imaging method, in which the first harmonic of the phase modulated signal due to local harmonic motion is sensed. This signal is related to the dielectric, elastic, and acoustic properties of the vibrating region. The purpose of this paper is twofold: 1) to demonstrate...
An Improved Receiver for Harmonic Motion Microwave Doppler Imaging
Soydan, Damla Alptekin; Irgin, Umit; Top, Can Baris; Gençer, Nevzat Güneri (2020-03-01)
© 2020 EurAAP.Harmonic motion microwave Doppler imaging is a novel imaging modality that combines focused ultrasound and radar techniques to obtain data based on mechanical and electrical properties of the tissue. In previous experimental studies, the Doppler component of the scattered signal is sensed and used to create 2D images of a tumor inside a homogeneous fat phantom. Due to the drawbacks of the receiver configuration, scanning time was high, the signal-to-noise ratio was low, and the multi-frequency...

Harmonic Motion Microwave Doppler Imaging (HMMDI) method is recently proposed as a non-invasive hybrid breast imaging technique for tumor detection. The acquired data depend on acoustic, elastic and electromagnetic properties of the tissue. The potential of the method is analyzed with simulation studies and phantom experiments. In this paper, the results of these studies are summarized. It is shown that HMMDI method has a potential to detect malignancies inside fibro-glandular tissue.

Harmonic Motion Microwave Doppler Imaging (HMMDI) is a hybrid method proposed for breast tumor detection, which images the coupled dielectric and elastic properties of the tissue. In this paper, the performance of a data acquisition system for HMMDI method is evaluated on breast phantom materials. A breast fat phantom including fibro-glandular and tumor phantom regions is produced. The phantom is excited using a focused ultrasound probe and a microwave transmitter. The received microwave signal level is mea...
2D Simulations Based on General Time-Dependent Reciprocal Relation for LFEIT
KARADAŞ, Mursel; Gençer, Nevzat Güneri (2015-08-29)
Lorentz field electrical impedance tomography (LFEIT) is a newly proposed technique for imaging the conductivity of the tissues by measuring the electromagnetic induction under the ultrasound pressure field. In this paper, the theory and numerical simulations of the LFEIT are reported based on the general time dependent formulation. In LFEIT, a phased array ultrasound probe is used to introduce a current distribution inside a conductive body. The velocity current occurs, due to the movement of the conductiv...
