Harmless microwaves and artificial intelligence (AI) software are used in a new system developed by Waterloo Engineering researchers to enable routine, inexpensive screening for breast cancer.
The technology promises benefits including earlier detection of tumors, no radiation exposure and enormous health-care savings.
“Our top priorities were to make this detection-based modality fast and inexpensive,” said Omar Ramahi, a professor of electrical and computer engineering. “We have incredibly encouraging results and we believe that is because of its simplicity.”
