Radio frequency spectroscopy is used to analyse tissue and distinguish between healthy and tumour tissue. The system works like a radar by emitting a radio frequency signal and measuring the resonance. The resulting image is used to identify cancerous tissue.
In addition to the radio frequency signals that pass to and from the analysis device, other connectors are often required to monitor the applicator during the treatment. HUBER+SUHNER manufactures both hybrid cables, consisting of frequency and signal connectors, and also complete bespoke cabling systems.
Radio frequency connectors
Since the connectors in medical applications often need to be connected and disconnected, the main demand in this sector is for connectors which are blind-mateable or which can be locked with a snap mechanism.
