RTM-01 Medical Radiometer




Medical radiometry is a perspective direction in the field of diagnosis of diseases entailing the change in the internal tissue temperature,

The pathology is detected by measuring the intensity of natural electromagnetic radiation from patients' internal tissue at microwavw frequencies. The intensity of radiation is proportional to the temperature of tissues.

The internal tissues temperature often changes due to inflammatory processes, change in blood supply or increased cell metabolism during the oncologic transformation of tissues.

Medical radiometry has a number of advantages, such a the fillowing:

• the early diagnosis of diseases, the possibility to detect pathology of the internal organs noninvasively before the set of structural changes that can be detected;

• the absolute absence of harm for patients of all ages and with any diseases, as well as for medical stuff;

• the possibility to conduct the examinations repeatedly (monitoring of treatment);

• the depth of the abnormality detection is 3 up to 10 cm;

• the simplicity of the device in handling (the procedure may be conducted by the secondary medical stuff).
