Abstract/Summary This paper discusses the development of an artificial heterogeneous breast phantom that emulates the electrical properties of human breast over the ultra wideband frequency range of 3.1GHz to 10.6GHz. The developed breast phantom has a realistic hemispherical shape and dielectric properties which are close to those of the different real breast tissues. This artificial breast phantom is to be used to test the reliability of the microwave imaging systems that are investigated for early breast cancer detection. The measured characteristics of the developed phantom validate its capability to emulate the characteristics of the real breasts. © 2010 IEEE.
