Microwave Radiometric Thermal Patterns and Antenna Match in Healthy Female Volunteers


Microwave thermographic profiles of the breast region of female volunteers were obtained using a 4.7 GHz radiometer. Apparent temperature elevations of about 0.4°C were seen in the areolar (nipple) region compared to the other areas of the breast. At least half of this apparent areolar temperature elevation may be attributed to improved antenna match at… (More)
