Husband-wife team set out to improve breast cancer exams
Date:6/20/2012

eter across near the middle of the breast tissue, and then run this algorithmit will tell you that there's a one centimeter tumor in the same location."

During the summer of 2012, Olson and her husband will try to speed up their algorithm's ability to solve problems by a factor of two. They also aim to improve the "fitness function" on their measured data to determine the best way to perform the tests at a clinical level. A fitness function summarizes, as a single figure of merit, how close a given design solution is to achieving the set aims.

In the near future, Olson and Throne plan to move the research from computer simulations to actual experiments and clinical use. The husband-wife team hopes that this new test will become an inexpensive, routine exam performed painlessly and harmlessly as part of an annual checkup even for relatively young women. This would greatly aid in early detection when breast cancer is most treatable.

"My daughter is 21 now," Olson said, "and I need to hurry up with the research because she wants it ready."
