Microwaves May Provide Early Detection Of Breast Cancer

radar technology. Several additional patents are pending.

The computational feasibility study was funded by a Phase-I Small Business Innovation Research grant from the National Institutes of Health to Interstitial with a subcontract to Northwestern. Prototype testing to date has been funded by Interstitial.

Results from the supercomputer simulations of the microwave tumor detection system were presented by Hagness in October 1997 in Chicago at the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers International Conference of the Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, and in June 1998 in Atlanta at the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society International Symposium. Initial results will also appear in refereed papers in December 1998 in IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering, and in early 1999 in IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation.

Interstitial is a tenant company of Northwestern's Basic Industry Research Laboratory, part of the Northwestern University/Evanston Research Park. The park is a research environment that seeks to accelerate technology transfer from the laboratory to the marketplace by combining the resources of a major university, a progressive community, and private industry. The park has a large concentration of entrepreneurial companies in such areas as software development, information-based technologies, medical services, and biotechnology. The companies enjoy ready access to Northwestern faculty and graduate students and to laboratory and library facilities. Northwestern has been a leader in creating interdisciplinary research centers for startup businesses since 1982.

In 1989 Hagness was in the first entering class of the McCormick School's Honors Program in Undergraduate Research, a combined B.S./Ph.D. program. She received her B.S. in electrical engineering in 1993, graduating at the top of her McCormick class. She also received national honors, including being named the outstanding junior-year electrical enginee
