In the project "Ultrasound Computer Tomography" (USCT) a new imaging methodology for early breast cancer detection is developed. It promises three dimensional images of the breast with high spatial resolution. Our aim is the detection of tumors with an average diameter of less than 5 mm to improve the survival probability of the patients.
