Title

Microwave reflectometry: a novel diagnostic method for detection of skin cancer

Author

Pratik Mehta

Abstract

"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.
