Project Abstract

Digital Image Elasto-Tomography is a novel medical imaging modality that looks to use digital image data of the surface motion of vibrating breast tissue to detect the presence and location of any stiff, malignant masses within the tissue. The intended use of this modality would be as a regular "pre-screening" image for women to help increase the likelihood of early detection of breast cancer.
