Nikola Petrovic received the M.Sc. degree in engineering electronics and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from Mälardalen University (MDH), Västerås, Sweden, in 2007 and 2014, respectively. He is currently a senior lecturer within the Embedded Sensor System for Health (ESS-H) research group at the department of Innovation Design and Engineering, MDH. His research interests include the engineering development and testing of microwave imaging systems, as well as other imaging techniques intended for medical diagnosis and treatment applications.
Microwaves are non-ionizing and hence less interfering with biological tissues than x-rays. For this reason microwave imaging in biomedicine is a potential method for mass-screening (mammography). At the same time, microwave sensing is a modality with higher dynamic signal response compared to x-rays, which is a further reason to investigate microwave imaging as a modality for biomedical applications. This project investigates how microwave imaging can be applied for this reason, focusing on measurement techniques and inverse algorithm development.
