In April 2021, Ellumen was granted approval for a new patent entitled “Accurate Signal Compensations for UWB (Ultra-Wide Bandwidth) Radar Imaging.” The invention is a novel radar imaging approach which considers the dispersion and loss of the transmission media as an Ultra-wide bandwidth signal propagates through a media (atmosphere, human body, etc.). This innovation introduces new technology for scanning the body without exposing a patient to the often-harmful, long-term effects of ionizing radiation. The first named inventor is Dr. Wenyi Shao with William and Todd McCollough as co-inventors. This patent significantly improves on former techniques and advances the ideas and technology available for medical imaging.
