Abstract/Summary A microwave head imaging prototype to detect intracranial hemorrhage is presented. The prototype system comprises of a compact ultra-wideband (UWB) antenna, custom-made transceiver and an image processing unit. The system is experimentally tested on a realistic three-dimensional (3D) printed human head phantom. A confocal image processing algorithm based on delay and sum approach is used to rapidly map the scanned layer of the head phantom. The low-cost, fast application, prompt detection and portability features of the proposed model make it a strong candidate to be used by the first response paramedics.
