Abstract:

A new principle for fast and inexpensive evaluation of the size, depth and elastic moduli of smallbreast using mechanical sensor is developed. The long term objective of this project is to realize tclinical device for mass breast screening and early detection of cancer. Mathematical modeling togetbiophysical studies have shown that this approach is capable of detecting smaller lesions and at grconventional manual palpation. The device comprises a probe equipped with an array of pressure sensocomputer interface for the probe and software for dynamic pressure pattern analysis, enabling one togeometrical and mechanical features of the breast tissues. This device uses no hazardous radiation aserve as a mass screening technique complementary to X-ray mammography. Specific aims of the projectexperimental setup and confirm the theoretically estimate resolution and sensitivity of the proposephantoms mimicking mechanical properties of normal and diseased breast, and using these phantoms, teapproach on mechanical models of breast with various types of cancer.
