Microwave reflectometry: a novel diagnostic method for detection of skin cancer
"This thesis examines the feasibility of using reflection properties of skin at microwave frequencies to differentiate between cancerous and non-cancerous lesions...Here, a method is proposed which exploits the differences in dielectric properties of normal skin and cancerous lesions at microwave frequencies to improve methods of performing a diagnosis early in the cancer's development, when the cancer is small and easily treatable."--Introduction, leaf 1.
