Over the last two decades, microwave imaging (MWI) has been investigated as a novel imaging and diagnostics technique for detection of breast cancer. A number of early small-scale clinical experiments have clearly illustrated the potential of the technology, while also revealing some significant remaining challenges. These technical challenges must be addressed before MWI is accepted as a viable alternative (or complement) to other medical imaging techniques such as X-ray, ultra-sound, and magnetic resonance imaging.
