The problems of designing a microwave radiometer for thermal monitoring of pelvic organs were considered. Based on mathematical modeling, a waveguide antenna for intracavitary diagnostics was developed. The antenna was tested in various phantoms and biological tissues. The obtained results can be used in various fields of medicine and robotics.
