Microwave imaging is emerging as a promising technique for breast-cancer detection. In this paper, the microwave imaging system currently being developed at the Technical University of Denmark is introduced. This system consists of 32 antennas positioned in a cylindrical setup, each equipped with its own transceiver module. The images are reconstructed using a Newton-based algorithm to solve the nonlinear inverse scattering problem.
