Many lives can be saved if tumors are detected in early stages, which can result in a bigger chance for recovery. Many patients find it irritating to get regular checkups due to the fact that the majority of the monitoring systems are complicated, not available everywhere and not mobile. Furthermore, for medical field applications, micro-strip antennas are efficient and have flexible properties that are utilized in imaging, diagnosis and treatment. It is known that breast cancer is the most… Expand
