AbstractDue to the critical need for complementary or alternative modalities to current X-ray mammography for early-stage breast cancer detection, a 3D holographic microwave imaging array (HMIA) system has been developed. This work describes how 3D images can be reconstructed from the 3D breast intensity distribution using holographic microwave and aperture synthesis imaging techniques. The obtained 3D simulation results have demonstrated the feasibility and superiority of detecting small malignant breast tumours using the proposed random antenna array. Simulation results demonstrate that the proposed technique has the potential to detect tumours of various sizes at various locations. © 2012 ACM.
