Abstract

Breast cancer kills more than 400,000 people each year worldwide [1]. However, the survival rate is approximately 95% if the cancer is detected early (early detection typically refers to tumors with diameter less than 1cm). Ultra-wideband microwave signals can theoretically be used to detect breast tumors as small as 2 mm [2]. Microwave detection is also less expensive and safer than other forms of detection, and is noninvasive. For these reasons this method has been increasingly recommended as a regular exam tool for early breast cancer detection [3].
