PROJECT TITLE :
Effective electrode sampling strategies for 3D electrical impedance mammography
A unique three-dimensional (3D) electrical impedance mammography (EIM) system, named the combined EIM (CEIM) system, is introduced. It combines a hoop electrode array with a planar electrode array which will operate independently or together. Three operational modes of the CEIM system are presented. Using a close-to-realistic digital breast phantom, the CEIM system is shown to produce enhanced detectability of a tumour deep within the tissue, as needed for a large-volume breast. An implicit comparison with the authors' former MK4 system demonstrates the advantages of this integrated multimode mammography system.
