Conclusion

 

The results presented are a proof-of-concept demonstrating how radio-wave imaging can be used to discriminate breast density. It has been shown that on a limited data set of 50 non-symptomatic breasts the method is able to discriminate between lucent and dense breasts with an accuracy of 76%. Future work includes improving the methodology in the presence of lesions and study the influence of other factors (e.g. age, pre/post-menopausal) in the classification process.
