Abstract: Breast cancer is the most common cancer in woman, and early detection increases the likelihood of successful treatment and long-term survival screen film mammography is currently the most effective method for detecting breast tumours, however this technique suffers from relatively high false negative and positive detection rates, and it involves uncomfortable compression of the breast. This paper presents the experimental investigation of real aperture synthetically organised radar for breast cancer detection. The work presented herein originated as a theoretical study employing FDTD models. This contribution presents subsequent experimental validation using a mechanically-scanned 2 element antenna array and a breast phantom consisting of synthetic biological materials.
