An ultrawideband microwave medical diagnostic system: Design considerations and system performance
Paper in proceedings, 2012

We discuss several issues in the design of an ultra-wideband microwave system dedicated to medical diagnostics. Based on the discussion, a FPGA-based time domain microwave diagnostic system is proposed. The noise sources of the system are identified and the system noise performance is analyzed. As an example, a 2-D antenna system is considered and the measurement signal to noise ratios are evaluated.
