Conformal Microwave Imaging for Breast Cancer Detection

  title={Conformal Microwave Imaging for Breast Cancer Detection},
  • Published 2009
An important feature of our Gauss–Newton iterative scheme for microwave breast image reconstruction is that only the heterogeneous target zone within the antenna array is represented using the finite-element method, while the surrounding homogeneous coupling medium is modeled with the boundary-element (BE) method. The interface between these two zones may be arbitrary in shape and position with the restriction that the BE region contains only the homogeneous coupling liquid. In this paper, we… CONTINUE READING
