Electrical Impedance Tomography as a Primary Screening Technique for Breast Cancer Detection


Electrical impedance tomography (EIT) is a new non-invasive, mobile screening method which does not useionizing radiation to the human breast. It is based on the theory that cancer cells display altered local dielectricproperties, thus demonstrating measurably higher conductivity values. This article reviews the utilisation ofEIT in breast cancer detection. It could be used as an adjunct to mammography and ultrasonography for breastcancer screening.
