Results of optimization of diagnostic signs of breast cancer received by microwave radiometry

Tatiana Zamechnik; Aleksandr Losev; Vladislav Levshinsky;

Based on a survey of 367 patients with breast diseases, mathematical descriptions of possible behavioral anomalies of temperature fields were proposed, and a set of highly informative features was built that would allow the physician to orient themselves quickly with changes in temperature fields when making a diagnosis using the «hint» of a consultative intellectual system. Mathematical analysis of qualitative signs of breast pathology allowed to expand and specify the description of known signs, to identify new, significant from the point of view of diagnosis, behavior anomalies of temperature fields of the mammary glands, which are practically not found in healthy ones. Due to the new highly specific signs, the sensitivity of the method has significantly increased. Using a minimal set of highlyi nformative signs with high specificity, primarily in the high-risk group, the most dangerous fast-growing tumors will be detected, diffuse and multifocal lesions of the mammary gland will be diagnosed, which are insufficiently verified
radiographically and with ultrasonography.
