AB - Microwave imaging is a promising technique for noninvasive imaging of brain activity. A multistatic array of body coupled antennas and single chip pulsed ultra-wideband radars should be capable of detecting local changes in cerebral blood volume, a known indicator for neural activity. As an initialverification that small changes in the cerebrovascular system can indeed be measured inside the skull, we recorded the heart rate intracranially using a single radar module and two body coupled antennas. The obtained heart rate was found to correspond to ECG measurements. To confirm that the measured signal was indeed from within the skull, we performed simulations to predict the time-of-flight of radar pulses passing through differentanatomical structures of the head. Simulated time-of-flight through the brain corresponded to the measured delay of heart rate modulation in the radar signal. The detection of intracranial heart rate using microwave techniques has not previously been reported, and serves as a first proof that functional neuroimaging using radar could lie within reach.
