Subject area: Electromagnetic imaging.

Abstract:Abstract:Two real-time reconstruction algorithms, quantitative microwave holography and scattered-power mapping, have been shown to be successful in the imaging of compressed tissue of relatively small thicknesses such as 1 cm and 2 cm. In both cases, planar data acquisition of frequency-swept transmission coefficients has been employed.
