Abstract

With the rising number of elderly people, the cancer rate is also increasing. Thus, to detect cancer in its early stages is very important for increasing survival rates because cancer is one of the leading causes of death. Therefore, diagnosing cancer with a radio frequency (RF) coil that is used to obtain high-quality medical images from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) systems is proposed in order to reduce the cost and time needed for the test. Specifically, an RF coil can sense a change in the electrical characteristics of body tissue, such as permittivity and conductivity. This pre-study shows that RF coils without an MR magnet can be used to determine the difference between normal and abnormal tissues (i.e. a tumour).
