Özet

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.
