Artifact Removal Algorithms for Microwave Imaging of the Breast
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research, Vol. 141, 185-200, 2013
Abstract
One of the most promising alternative imaging modalities for breast cancer detection involved the use of microwave radar systems. A critical component of any radar-based imaging system for breast cancer detection is the early-stage artifact removal algorithm. Many existing artifact removal algorithms are based on simplifying assumptions about the degree of commonality in the artifact across all channels. However, several real-world clinical scenarios could result in greater variation in the early-stage artifact, making the artifact removal process much more difficult. In this study, a range of existing artifact removal algorithms, coupled with algorithms adapted from Ground Penetrating Radar applications, are compared across a range of appropriate performance metrics.
