<Contents of the award> "Development of a System for Early Diagnosis of Breast Cancer"

The X-ray dark field method for living body soft tissue is developed using radiation light and a system for early detection of breast cancer, etc. is developed. The X-ray dark field method picks up only the X ray that is refracted at the affected area using asymmetrical reflection of a single silicon crystal and the silicon angle analyzer plate on the rear of the affected area. With a high contrast, a slight difference in refraction rate between the cancer tissue and normal tissue can be drawn.
An algorithm is developed that obtains the CT image from the refraction image. Very high consistency of the three-dimensional image of the non-infiltrating breast duct cancer with the pathological diagnostic slice images was observed.
