The use of medical imaging technology to efficiently diagnose and manage disease has never been more important. One of the most promising emerging imaging modalities is Microwave Imaging (MI), which is low-power, low-cost and non-ionising. Also, microwaves have a dual diagnosis and therapeutic capability.

European researchers have been at the very forefront of the development of Microwave Imaging techniques. The COST Action TD1301 established a European network of interdisciplinary researchers working to overcome existing challenges and bring Microwave Imaging from “research bench to patient bedside” in a much shorter period of time. 

For the past years this action has worked on optimisation of microwave imaging prototypes; new techniques and emerging applications for microwave imaging; establishment and management of the clinical trials of MWI prototypes and widespread adoption of microwave imaging devices in clinical practice and framework for their commercialisation.

The closing conference will bring to a close four years of work and discuss the Action's findings with academics, practitioners and other interested stakeholders.
