Abstract

Breast Microwave Imaging techniques require information about the skin in order to improve their performance. This information is useful as reference system to locate the detected lesion, to declutter in a proper way the data, to give an initial guess for inverse imaging problems, or to improve
the penetration of the signal. This paper presents an algorithm that estimates the breast surface using the time domain signals received by antennas placed around the breast on a semi-spherical surface.
