The device is intended for imaging and diagnostics of pathological changes of the breast tissues. The electrical impedance method of diagnostics is based on the fact that electrical conductivity (ability to conduct electrical current) of biological tissues correlates considerably to their physiological status. It is well-known that many tumours, in particular malignant breast tumours, feature electrical conductivity, which differs significantly from the electrical conductivity of surrounding healthy tissues. This phenomenon explains high sensitivity of the mammograph. The device enables, using the Electrical Impedance Tomography (EIT) method, to obtain the picture of biological tissues electrical conductivity distribution in the cros-sections of the breast at different frequencies. Distribution of electrical conductivity in every cross-section is visualized on a PC screen. The key advantages of electrical impedance method of diagnostic are as follows: absolute safety of examination, high level of information content, compactness, affordability and simplicity of the examination procedure. The mammograph is intended for usage in conditions of specialized branches of hospitals and clinics. The device software supports exchange of data and images in DICOM format.
