Millimeter-wave reflectometry can be used as a non-invasive method for early detection of skin cancers. Less penetration and higher resolution are only some reasons to use mm-waves for skin cancer diagnosis. The dielectric parameters data of human skin at mm-wave frequencies are not widely addressed in the literature due to the expensive instruments and the complicated structure of human skin. Available dielectric properties of cancerous tissues in the literature are for other tissues rather… CONTINUE READING
