17 April 2012

Professor Ian Craddock from the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering was interviewed on BBC One's Bang Goes the Theory about the world’s first radar breast imaging system.

The world’s first radar breast imaging system was featured on BBC One's Bang Goes the Theory on Monday 16 April and Professor Ian Craddock from the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering was interviewed about the breast imaging system.

The system called MARIA (Multistatic Array processing for Radiowave Image Acquisition) is a breast imaging technique that captures high-resolution, 3D images through the use of harmless radio waves. It could revolutionise the way women are screened for breast cancer and is ideal to scan women of all ages.

Professor Craddock, along with Alan Preece, Emeritus Professor in the School of Clinical Sciences, has led a team to create the breast imaging system.

The programme is available to watch again on BBC iplayer.
