I am working at a company over the summer as an intern and they are working on new methods for diagnosing breast cancer. They are trying to help doctors to distinguish more accurately between benign and malignant tumors and avoid the need for more invasive procedures such as biopsy. They are using elastography to do this. I want to learn more about what is going on so that I can get the most out of the internship, but I’m not really sure what to study. Beamforming is involved as well, there is a heavy emphasis on computer programming, primarily in c # and matlab. I want to work on some tutorials for matlab, but there are a lot out there and I need a bit more direction. Does anyone have any ideas what sort of tutorials would be best for this area in matlab? Also, I would like to pick up some more general knowledge on what’s going on, but I am unsure of what sort of textbooks to even open.
