Microwave Sensing Dataset for Noninvasive Monitoring of Ventricle Enlargement due to Alzheimer's Disease
The research hypothesis for this study was to investigate the potential of microwave imaging using unidirectional antennas for monitoring neurodegenerative diseases, specifically Alzheimer's disease. The data was collected using a wearable device and measurement setup that included five lamb brain phantoms that were designed to mimic the lateral ventricle enlargement due to Alzheimer's disease .The data include both the magnitude and the phase for each of the five phantoms at each discrete frequency. The most interesting thing about this study is that the data from the microwave imaging with unidirectional antennas was able to accurately show the enlargement of the lateral ventricles and the presence of cerebral spinal fluid in the lamb brain phantoms. This suggests that this method could be used to track neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's. This data can be interpreted and used by researchers and scientists working on developing novel signal processing and imaging techniques, as well as those interested in validating simulation results. It can also be used to further investigate the potential of microwave imaging for monitoring neurodegenerative diseases.
