Abstract

Medical Medical Microwave Imaging (MMWI) is an alternative type of medical imaging which has shown promising results in a handful medical applications for the past 20+ years. The applications addressed in this twinning project are Bone, Brain, Breast & Axillary region (3BAtwin) diagnosis. MMWI is an attractive imaging modality due to its non-invasiveness, use of non-ionising radiation, no need for compression, low power and comparatively low-cost, when comparing to other imaging modalities. All these characteristics make MMWI an attractive imaging modality for screening of several diseases or conditions. In this twinning project, the main goal for the partners is to ultimately capacitate the coordinator with the various specific/fine knowledge and tools which will allow to accelerate MMWI from the research bench to the patient bedside. Researchers in FC.ID possess general knowledge within the MMWI field of research that allowed them to attain their current standing. However, their journey to establish a laboratory and reach their current position has been a lengthy process. The overarching objective of 3BAtwin is for FC.ID to gain excellence capacity in all sub-fields related to MMWI research, and become strong competitors in translating their unique breast and axillary region device to the hospital, which will be possible by further establishing a solid collaboration with project partners: University of Galway (GALWAY) in Ireland, and Politecnico de Torino (POLITO) in Italy. GALWAY and POLITO are two excellent research institutes, also working on MMWI projects with excellent knowledge in specific fields that are of interest to raise the profile of FC.ID. By leading 3BAtwin, gaining key knowledge and working alongside the excellent project partners, FC.ID will be well poised to achieve excellency, boost their research and innovation capacity and become a competitive national and international reference in the area of medical microwave imaging.
