This paper proposes a new smart Bra concept to detect any potential strange lumps in women’s breasts by ultrasounds waves. These suspicious lumps can be a cyst, Abscess, Fibroadenoma, or Tumor. This system consists of 18 transducers positioned in a specific way, distributed on a ring, with a 5 MHz central frequency while respecting the anatomy of the breasts. We aim to minimize the main lobe's beamwidth (BW) and maximize the radiation field along the side lobes (SLL) of the transducer, with this wide lateral diffraction caused by the piezoelectric, we can detect any strange corps in the breast.
Our hypothesis was confirmed by the correlation coefficient formula, where two signals are compared according to their spatial resemblance potentially. According to our findings, there are no suspicious lumps in the breast, while the correlation coefficient is as high as 0.2.
