Real-Time Microwave Imaging Device for Endoscopic Explorations and Interventions Real-Time Microwave Imaging Device for Endoscopic Explorations and Interventions

Microwave imaging is one of the most promising emerging imaging methods because is low-cost, portable and safe. The aim of the project is to support the development of a prototype for microwave endoscopic imaging. The device will be a small endoscope head composed by several radio frequency (RF) sensors that will allow to form cross-sectional both anatomical and functional images of the interior of the gastro-intestinal tract as the endoscope travels along it. The project involves different stages of the technology pipeline including preprototype design, manufacturing, modelling and testing. The project will be carried out in Miwendo Solutions, a spin-off of UPF.
