Abstract

A new microwave imaging system is developed for breast cancer imaging. The system consist of a fixed array, liquid-based microwave system operation in the frequency range of 300 to 1000 MHz for target region diameters up to 26 cm. The tissue sample was comprised of breast tissue and placed in an 8.2 cm diameter plastic container. Images were recovered at 900 MHz with a data acquisition time of roughly 1 second and the image reconstruction requiring 24 minutes. Results reveal that high contrast, tumor-like objects can be detected in ex-vivo breast tissue using the new microwave imaging system.
