Research Projects

  • Therapeutic heating of tissue

    Therapeutic heating of tissue

    Selectively elevating the temperature of body tissue has a variety of therapeutic effects. Different methods of microwave heating are being developed for use in cornea reshaping, fallopian tube occlusion, and treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia as well as liver and prostate cancer.

  • Dielectric properties of tissue

    Dielectric properties of tissue

    Dielectric properties of tissue—measured through advanced microwave imaging techniques—convey functional information useful for making clinical diagnoses. The properties reflect tissue composition of fat, bone, water, proteins, etc., and often have unique spectral characteristics. The relative proportions and dynamic aspects of these constituents can have important implications for breast cancer imaging, osteoporosis detection, brain imaging, and heat therapy monitoring.
