Microwave imaging is acquiring a growing importance in several biomedical applications, such as breast and brain stroke diagnosis and monitoring. In this work, a preliminary feasibility analysis concerning the application of such a technique to the monitoring of cervical myelopathy is reported. In particular, suitable working conditions are defined on the basis of a simplified multilayer model of the neck and a first inversion result, aimed at assessing the possibility of retrieving the spinal cord size, is shown.

Abstract

Microwave imaging is acquiring a growing importance in several biomedical applications, such as breast and brain stroke diagnosis and monitoring. In this work, a preliminary feasibility analysis concerning the application of such a technique to the monitoring of cervical myelopathy is reported. In particular, suitable working conditions are defined on the basis of a simplified multilayer model of the neck and a first inversion result, aimed at assessing the possibility of retrieving the spinal cord size, is shown.
