A Compact UWB Antenna Design for Breast Cancer Detection
  Near field imaging using microwave in medical applications has gain much attention recently as various researchers show its high ability and accuracy in illuminating object compares to well known screening tools. This paper documents the development of new compact ultra wide bandwidth antenna designed primarily for microwave imaging application such as breast cancer detection. A parametric study is carried out using two well known softwares packages to achieve optimum antenna performances. The performance of the Prototype antenna is tested and analyzed experimentally and exhibit reasonable agreement with the simulations.
