On Microwave Breast Imaging with Ultrasound Spatial Priors
Preprints are manuscripts made publicly available before they have been submitted for formal peer review and publication. They might contain new research findings or data. Preprints can be a draft or final version of an author's research but must not have been accepted for publication at the time of submission.
ultrasound compressibility image are fed as spatial priors
into a microwave imaging algorithm. It is shown that this
method requires minimal post-processing of the ultrasound
image and can enhance the achievable microwave image
accuracy. It is also demonstrated that small tumours can
still go undetected in microwave breast imaging using this
method if their edges are missing from the spatial priors.
