Abstract/Summary Ultra wideband (UWB) radar has been extensively investigated both theoretically and practically for the identification buried artifacts. Ground probe radar (GPR) concentrates on the identification of lightly buried land mines, unexploded ordnance (UXO) and archeological targets. The same technology is proposed in a similar context for the rapid identification of in vivo implanted metallic prostheses. The technique is based on resonance based target identification and the paper investigates UWB scattering from a metallic hip prosthesis in free space as a first step in the identification process.
