Milica Popović – Development of a Wearable, Low-Power RF Breast Cancer Detector

August 10 @ 4:10 pm - 5:00 pm
S112, Engineering South,

Abstract Breast cancer is one of the deadliest illnesses for women today. The goal of the research presented in this talk, conducted at McGill University in Montreal, Canada, is to develop a low-power RF wearable device, which can screen breast tissues monthly. With such frequent monitoring, it may be possible to detect potentially harmful tissue changes, i.e., early-stage tumors. The method relies on inherent differences (in the electromagnetic sense) between the tumorous and healthy tissues at microwave (RF) frequencies. Since…
