Microwave imaging is recognized as a potential candidate for biomedical applications, such as breast tumor detection. In this context, the capability of a planar microwave camera to produce quantitative imaging of high-contrast inhomogeneous objects is investigated. The image reconstruction is achieved by means of an iterative Newton-Kantorovich algorithm. Promising numerical simulation results indicate that the planar geometry is suitable for quantitative imaging, as long as the signal-to… CONTINUE READING
