Abstract

Microwave imaging is based on recovering the electrical properties, namely permittivity and conductivity, of materials. Microwave imaging for biomedical applications is particularly interesting, because the available range of dielectric properties of different tissues can provide substantial functional information about their health. Breast cancer detection and treatment response monitoring are areas where microwave imaging is becoming a promising alternative/complementary technique to current imaging modalities, mainly due to the significant dielectric property contrast between normal and malignant breast tissues. In this paper, we present our latest clinical microwave imaging system along with some 2D and 3D reconstructed images from different phantom experiments and patient data.
