Abstract [en]

In this paper with present the experimental results of imaging a 12mm copper rod immersed in water with a relative permittivity of ε = 78 , σ = 0.2. A copper rod is a simpler object to analyze for these first series of investigations than a hip prostesis. One should note that it has a relative permeability μ = μ0. The prosteses is also manufactured using titanium and it posseses a similiar permeability to that of copper. The setup used is very similiar to that proposed for the detection of breast cancer tumors [1],[2].The metalic rod is immeresed in water and is surrounded by an array of transceivers. The multi static data matrix is recorded as a function of frequency on the boundary of the medium under test. The multi static data matrix is a square complex symmetrix matrix. The elements consist of the received relative amplitude and phase between each sensor element as a function of frequency. A vector network analyzer and a switching matrix is used as the transceiver module. The mulitstatic data matrix is fourier transformed to time domain in order to be used in the FDTD based algorithm. The imaging algorithm used is similiar but a modified version to that proposed by Tanaka, Takenaka, He[3] and Gustafsson,He [4].The results of these first attempts to image metalic object are very promising and one can potentially use the proposed setup in various fields of medical imaging.
