Principles 1 

In 1975 radio astronomer A.H.Barrett showed that  microwave radiometer  is allowed  to measure non-invasively  the internal temperature of human tissues and can be used for breast cancer detection. In subsequent years, a number of studies confirmed the effectiveness of the use of microwave radiometers for revealing pathologies of internal tissues.

The distribution of the method was limited to the need to conduct a survey in a shielded room that protects against exposure to external radiation. In  2009 under the leadership of Sergey Vesnin the team has created the first EMI protected microwave device. The release of such a device laid the foundation for the application of the method in practical medicine. Microwave emmission from mammary glands is included in the standard of medical services in several countries.
