Model Demonstration of a microwave-induced thermo-acoustic tomography (MITAT) for medical imaging.

AUTHORS' ABSTRACT: Chen et al. 2008 (IEEE #6637): The acoustic wave generated for the rapid absorption of thermo-energy in an elastic media (thermo-acoustic) can be easily detected [1]. In recent decades, Kruger [2] and Wangs group [3], et al, extended the microwave-induced thermo-acoustic (MITA) technique to generate tomography imaging of biological tissues and obtained some great initial results. Microwave-induced thermo-acoustic tomography (MITAT) has becoming a promising technology in medical imaging field and has attracted much attention.
