On the use of different polarization measurements in microwave imaging of breast cancer tumors
Paper in proceedings, 2014
In this paper the use of different polarization data in microwave image reconstruction is investigated. The present study is based on numerical simulation data of a generic breast phantom, and a time domain FDTD based reconstruction method. In general, reconstruction results are be both application and algorithm dependent. The results show very different reconstructed images when using different polarization data. We conclude that polarization could be an important factor to consider when optimizing the design of a microwave imaging system.
