The physical contrast sensitivity of microwave imaging systems employing scattering-parameter measurements is defined. Methodologies are proposed for its evaluation through measurements and through simulations. This enables the estimation of the smallest detectable target permittivity contrast or size for the system under evaluation. The outcomes of the… CONTINUE READING
