Microwave Imaging for Brain Stroke Monitoring


A brain stroke is a widespread disorder that affects around one in six people in their life, top-ranking worldwide as causes of death, disability, and dementia in otherwise healthy adults. It is a medical emergency caused by the interruption of the regular supply of oxygen-rich blood to the brain, leading to the loss of millions of brain cells per minute. Thus, requiring prompt treatment. Stroke care widely relies on brain imaging technologies, identifying the specific pathophysiologic conditions for tailored treatment and enhancing effectiveness. The most well-established solutions are computerized X-ray tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Moreover, in recent years microwave imaging (MWI) has emerged as a complementary technology that allows early diagnosis and bed-side follow-up. MWI relies on the electric contrast between the healthy brain tissues and the pathologies to retrieve essential diagnostic information according to their typology and their physiopathological status.

I work toward the Ph.D. degree with the Department of Electronics and Telecommunications at Politecnico di Torino (Italy), with the applied electromagnetics group. I am currently a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellow involved in the modeling and designing of microwave imaging systems for cerebrovascular diseases as part of the European project EMERALD.
