A First Evaluation of the Realistic Supelec-Breast Phantom
Journal article, 2017

A microwave tomographic system is used to evaluate the realistic breast phantom developed at the Supelec institute. The system utilizes 16 monopole antennas and a modern vector network analyzer (VNA) to measure the phantoms influence on the S-parameters. An iterative algorithm is then used to solve the inverse problem and reconstruct a 2-D plane transecting the phantom. The reconstructed images are compared to the ones recovered from a cylindrical phantom of equivalent phantom media. The results show that both phantoms are possible to reconstruct, although the interior of the Supelec phantom is more challenging.
