The clinical efficacy of emerging microwave breast cancer detection and hyperthermia treatment techniques (see [X. Li et al., 2005], [M. Converse et al., 2004] and references therein) depend on the microwave dielectric properties of normal, malignant, and benign breast tissues. Knowledge of these properties has been limited by gaps and discrepancies in previously published small-scale studies reporting the dielectric properties of normal and malignant breast tissues obtained from cancer… CONTINUE READING
