 The research aims to design and develop a device for detecting blood vessels and breast tumors, referred to as BKA-06. Based on the principle of electromagnetic radiation absorption of substances and the electronic mechanisms of blood components, the device allows physicians to visually observe subcutaneous blood vessels with the naked eye or analyze them through thermal imaging. The BKA-06 integrates a current control circuit to provide appropriate brightness (with a maximum illuminance of 98592 lx) for examining the superficial vascular system under the skin. Initial laboratory testing results show that the BKA-06 provides real-time images with a depth penetration of 3 to 5 cm through the skin. It is expected that the BKA-06 will assist doctors and healthcare professionals in overcoming difficulties in injection and blood sampling.
